Heart of Paris My heart In Paris Tombs My soul Lays scented under lamp lit dark Empty cafes Alone inside the carafe of wine Pay the garcon Pay the devils fine Endless streets Plentiful pastries I am both fat and thin I am both rich and poor I have books Both written and read Now over in the graveyard Come read me dead Arthur Unknown

I am sure I would enjoy having a walk and a coffee in Paris with the real Arthur! I tell myself that I know how your mind works, and then the next minute you prove me wrong with a surprise move...I wonder if you play chess:) Oh....love this poem! ~ Regards // paul
