A common sight in downtown Vienna:
Characters leaving the fictional realm of guide books
and then desperately trying to figure out
how to get back in
too much about how it all works
of those who know their boundaries
Illusion or not,
the first encounter happened within sight
of Tiffany's at Kohlmarkt - and we all know
how they don't serve breakfast -
from there the scene moved to Chanel's Boutique,
while frozen in time happened in front of Diesel's
where moments before - or after? - Adrien Brody
did not play the piano.
And the really clever characters?
Somewhere on Kärntner Strasse,
spray-painting fake snowflakes
in their own reality.
Photographed in the afternoon
of 13 December 2012
unless it all happened
only in my imagination
