your feedback

'people who say putain'

my little bit of france

the images you have been fed

of a dream country

tour eiffel bérêt baguette

none of that

ok, yes the baguette

my memories instead

colorful snapshots

of laughter and pain

crêpes jeux de mots putain

this is why i traveled 

maybe it's all the same

i don't want French to be the water

i swim in

monolithic grey

i want to stand on the sand

and dip in the blue

observe its colors from

far away

close enough, though

that i can see my own reflection

my body shape moving

at the rhythm of the waves

words all over my skin

i am wearing a story

i thought there would be 

a bit more laughter


but don't attack my pain

cos it is mine

my france and your france

won't ever be the same

who am i kidding

see, i talk about my france

in english

but my words will probably be read

by people who say




eternalized on the human body

'feel the early morning sun on her skin, the soft warm air in her hair and smell the sweet touch of grass and lavender in the air'
