In December of 2007 I took this picture of a building on Decatur Street in New Orleans.
Over the years I have created several photo-art pieces from the original image. Here are just a few.

The Devil Wears French

In the diary of a sinner
there be a Toussaint 
tainted with well too many overturesA colorful creole crayon
sashaying in a coupé de ville
Often times
snaking in wait at the nice bars
and gardens that belong to Eden

The women there be easy on the Jesus
Gumbo Genevieves smiling pretty
with their crests fallen like moon Indigo
and open to almost anything
especially a charmed tongue

Mon Chéri 
it only cost a quarter for that French

Boyhood days in Eve’s bayou spent on 
Bourbon street
becoming fluent in the devil’s language

A pig’s latin
the words  tend to caress

Mon Chéri…
It only cost a quarter for that French

— Benjamin Welch

Fat Tuesday Thoughts — A Little Bit Of Dis, Dat or D’udda   3 comments

New Orleans, Decatur Street — Image by kenne

 One of our favorite cities is New Orléans. The list of things we like and places we have been is too long for this posting — only to say with yesterday being Fat Tuesday, our thoughts were fueled by the senses conjuring up the sites, the smells, the people and the music of this very special city along the mighty Mississippi — yes, a little bit of dis, dat, or  d’udda!
