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

Door In The French Quarter   1 comment

Doors are for Opening

My serious apprehension of being

Is freed by acts of becoming — 

Through the task of opening doors,

Where I learn from the past,

Laugh at today’s mistakes, and

Dream about tomorrow.

Full of the profane 

We walk this temporal street 

Yet something sacred.
