Paris #1


Paris awaits those with money and vacation,
tucked in their pockets, another escape,
another duration.
A time lapse weekend in cafe fronts
with espresso cups to be drunk at once.
Ponders and wanders ‘round the arrondissements  
longer and longer is the brilliance
of the architecture that looms over head,
the fresh smell of boulangerie bread-
through the streets that wind and thread.
