She sits 

In a chair



She chirps

A baby bird

Father orders good

Mother is away

in the ladies’room.

French speaking

They talk to Parisian


Returning to kiss

Baby bird 

Whose ears 

Are adorned

With shining  diamonds .

What brought the French

to this hot humid land

With less fashion

And museums

And more jews?

The elderly woman 

Who watches over  their 

Baby girl

Does so

 without a gesture 

Of gratitude;

Without a 

“Merci  beaucoup”*

And the returning


Will kiss and feed

Their baby girl

the diamonds will shine 

With her dried tears

And come back

To explain

her inability to love

In future years

or else viewed

As a curse from



merci=thank you in French
