I saw Paris. I did.
I just did not see the Eiffel Tower.

Two metal studs, symmetrically placed
Below her full, african lips.
A yellow hippo on her lap,
Green paws, ears and snout.
Beauty circling below the ground.

Et si vous pouvait tout changer
En 24 heures?

We locked gazes. He walked straight
Into the arm of a swirling waiter,
Sending a shower of broken glass and coins
To give shine to the concrete walkway.
A circle dance all for me.

I saw Paris. I did.
I just did not see the Eiffel Tower.
