Dream of:07 December 1989 (2) "Spanish Poem"
I had come to East Berlin, Germany for a visit, and perhaps was even going to stay there for awhile. As I walked through the streets, I felt lonely because I didn't know any one here. I tried to think of how I was going to meet people. I thought if I saw someone on the street who looked interesting, I might just walk up to him and begin talking. But I would only do it with a man, because a woman would just think I was trying to pick her up.
Finally I passed by a building which some people were entering. I walked to the door and looked in. It looked as if some kind of sports arena were inside. I decided not to enter, and instead I sat down at a table in front of the building.
Now I begin doing something which I had put off for a long time – memorizing a Spanish poem. It was difficult at first, but after some effort I began to have a feel for the first two lines of the poem.
Finally I decided to walk around some more and memorize the poem as I walked. Only when I rose and started walking away did I notice that a young woman had sat down at a table next to me. Perhaps I should stay and try to strike up a conversation with her. But she looked rather homely, and I decided to move on.
