gypsy sunset at fisherman’s bastion

It is the middle of August.  The sun blushes behind Fisherman’s Bastion.  To the east, across the slow-rippling Duna, Parliament awakens in a coral glow.  Budapest in its quietest form.  Curling between the neo-gothic arches are the aching gypsy melodies. Domes, spires, dolomite ramparts as common as carbons. Follow the music into panorama.  Upstream.  Down.  Margit Island to Gellért Hill. You’re not a tourist anymore.
