and so you’re telling me

that a beautiful French girl

will be kissing me

and whispering, “Je t’aime, Je t’aime”


and I imagine

that would be

a spectacular turn of events


Sacre Merde!

that would be

a pretty good trade off


I’m sure I would

be able to find

some kind of job

to, you know, pay the bills


but the concept is intriguing

and it is beginning

to dawn on me

that I probably should be

somewhere over there


writing outrageous poems

about my X-rated exploits

on those fabled Parisian streets

with all the legend

and plush history


It is truly

a pretty picture

that I’ve been aspiring

to paint my whole life
