au lapin agile

montmartre

after the ecstacy
au lapin agile,
the quiet walk home
in grey light;
after the gypsy guitars’
relentless joy,
after the chanteuses
and choruses of clowns,
after the poets and poseurs,
the painters and flaneurs,
(and who’s to say
who is who?)
pierrot;
dissolving like smoke
on the skyline
from brancusi chimneys
above the butte
de belle montmartre.
