après le déluge

après le déluge


I will love you long

after the lock we affirmed

on Le Pont des Arts

has turned to rust… and the bridge?

a memory swept to sea…


you will have forgotten me.

A lot said in this little observation of (often) thoughtless trysts.

Love lockets cut off by council workers.


Its been a long while since I wrote a Tanka. Useful format. I might try it again.


Well maestro. You did it again. A lot said – that’s right. I needn’t say more. It doesn’t get much better than this as far as I can tell.
