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.
