Paris

By David Jowitt

There is a message,
On a tourist board,
Saying that Paris is the city of love.

But someone told me,
Paris is lonely-
And that the only lovers left are widows.

But in the cafes,
You can still see them:
Yesterdays generation drink their coffee.

In the alleyways,
The forgetful youth,
Just pass on by and look forward to the end of tomorrow.
