, , , , , ,


walking on the grand boulevard
like an american lost star
from a last woody movie
alone or twice, with the man au parapluie

driving in the grand soir de Paris
like a vintage mercedes fan
a smoking cafe crème woman
alone or twice, ami-ami, chère amie

dreaming of the grand opéra de la vie
as cyprus cendrillon
faraway from Larnaca and sea
alone or twice, after midnight beneath his umbrella
