Paris in that night had the light

distributed for the drops of rain

 

Sartre and Beauvoir were not there

 

In Café de Flore, three or four

spoons of sugar drowned

the bitter taste of the coffee, they drank it

first my eyes as a ritual, my lips later

 

In my language I would write

a previsible poem

 

Other times, Paris was a bluish air bit.

This one has some original images and expressions. I especially like the first couplet and the last line:

Paris in that night had the light

distributed for the drops of rain ...

 

Other times, Paris was a bluish air bit ....

I remember this one from the old board. Thanks for sharing it again here.
