in a cafe somewhere

in a café somewhere


cue the accordion

the style that make believes us to be in paris

mona lisa


and hon hon hon

the entire day

filled with various romantic happenings

until we’re left looking at the eiffel tower


which is actually much smaller in person

standing at four inches tall

on my desk

the accordion is on my lap

been trying something new in my life


it is late

pretty sure the neighbors are making love

so i play louder

to drown them out

and pretend i’m at a café somewhere

the kind you see in foreign films


i am sitting alone

caffeinated drink that i cannot pronounce

my english to french dictionary

a dead giveaway that i’m not from around here

which is much more charming than i realize

as i fumble through the pages

to gather my words
