Sinking Feeling


by Neil McCarthy


I take a table at a bar on Kaiserstrasse.

The bar tender is Austrian but blames

her American accent on Netflix.

It´s totally normal nowadays. Right?

 

I cradle my beer in a booth large enough

to seat eight,

 

like a lifeboat wasted

 

while those still on the ship don´t notice the water

as they pray to their religion of screens
