What Is Spring In Berlin?
Spring in Berlin is about paper flowers
and yellow flowers
and flowering trees.
It's about remembering that magnolias don't only grow in California
and sometimes pretending to be one.
Spring in Berlin is bikini-clad beer flavored kisses from your lover on the grass field in Hasenheide
It is sleeping in the sun with an arm around your shoulders as you wear a cowboy hat.
Spring is bright clothes
and bright plastic
and babies pulling on the hem of your dress.
