              Fainting And Falling
   (Published in Spillwords 3-30-23)

Fainting and falling,

like a crumpled Japanese lantern.


Breaking bones and confidence,

like a nursery rhyme egg.


Will I ever be put back together again?

To go back to Montmartre for a sweet chocolate crepe?


In the shadows of Sacré-Coeur.

Travertine- strong, made brighter in the rain.
