Poem #7

May 6th


‘l’enfer, c’est les autres’

so this should be heaven


wrong, Jean Paul Sartre

we miss them like


all those others

we need them



la vie existentielle

is all very well

when there’s choice

but without it

is boredom

a case of ennui

that can only be cured


la belle compagnie

social intercourse

two for tea.
