The Poetry Place

John Clare in a Paris Bar 3

Tuesday, 21 April 2009 8:18:10

I want to bring in something of the cafe exterior - so important to those kinds of places. (Outside Parisians smoke, phone, text, write, read, empty espresso cups, ashtray lighter menu memo pad and pen.)

I love the outside tables where the sign swings out
over parisians with mobile phones and cigarettes
empty espresso cups their one excuse to stay
and where    text, write, read, play....????

Away for a few days.  Back with some inspiration, I hope.
