if u feel sad right now look at this bunny eating a flower
even if you don’t feel sad, you should look.
“With Barbara Guest in Paris”
Oh Barbara! do you think
they’ll ever name anything after us like
rue Henri-Barbusse or
canard a l’ouragan?
have infected a pale white
with our melancholy lights
and vaguely proud dissemblings?
care for the lap of Mallarmé
and the place where heroes fell down
is right in our Pushkinesque enclosure
as greatness sleeps outside
smiles and bears
the purple city air
