Visiting Me in the Museum

Written & Narrated by Britta Kollberg



Visiting Me in the Museum

A collection. Berlin Wall

by Britta R. Kollberg


Not me, of course, I’m still here

looking at

the graves of those who tried

to flee

(while the bereaved now attack those

who come fleeing here)

Recent history

boring as ever – I know it, I’ve been there

exhibits displaying my everyday every day

And what do we learn? When for?

Surprisingly, there is an old churchyard just

alongside the memorial. The tulips

are almost one meter high. Yellow, like light.

The gravestones whispering old age, happy


from children and grandchildren

to those buried with both feet resting

on homeland ground.
