If I were to Frenchify Myself

If I were to frenchify myself
I would walk more often
Maybe to work. 
It is only twenty-seven miles.

But how would I get over the river?
Would I want to walk on 
Interstate bridges?

If I were to frenchify myself
I would wear a jaunty red beret
perched on my head at an angle while I paint.

People would smile and say 
“I did not know she was French” and
my Irish self would smirk.

If I were to frenchify myself 
I would lose eighty pounds and 
eat vegetables and maybe a fruit.

I would make love on the Rivera
and speak all of my French words.
French toast, French kissing, and FrenchFries.

Haha! Love the last stanza with your extensive "vocabulaire français"! BTw, thanks for reading about moth nomenclature. Hope you caught the humor with mom-moth and man-moth. No sure moths. Merci./ M
