The first time we met

was in coliseum books

you was sunk in

a chair reading

Jean-Paul Sartre

I said

"what are you reading"

You said


"you need nausea for this"

I said.

Hello Joao, I like this poem how it starts, but on the end I just got confused. icon_rolleyes.gif The last two line goes in different way on this poem. So simply I can't understand and find the real sense.


Bw I like to read Sartre poetry. It have a spirit inside.


Thank you for sharing

Hello JT Parreira,


Aleksandra is right - your poem begins with a chance encounter in a book shop and a mention of the French existentialist Satre, and ends with a mention of his book Nausea. There is definitely a pun here but one wonders if its a little too elusive for the reader to engage with?


Just an opinion. I look forward to your view on what you think about our reading - perhaps mine is off the mark!
