If Truth Be a Woman

She would say, just to me,

that she heard the language of

two hundred years hence, but

knowing none would understand it

held back from putting pen to paper.

 

Just tell them, she said, that I

heard them all before they came

and how they all faded long after.

She knew enough to know she was

neither liar nor truth-teller. Because

 

she was a passing acquaintance

I believed every word she said.

Promenade

In Paris on late Sunday afternoons

the boulevardes were usually deserted.

All the mannequins in the coiffeuses stores

stared out at all the people not passing.
