  • Theresa does not want to leave Boston.
    Holger and I fear she will sneak into a corner
    at the airport and avoid boarding the plane.
    I understand how she feels,
    there is almost nothing waiting for us
    back in Germany.
    And Boston, although wet,
    was refreshing and
    redefining as usual.
    "We will come again," I promise her.
    And I begin to cry as we arrive
    only to leave again.
