The World Seen Through The Eyes Of Éric Rohmer Perhaps by Jonathan Beale


The graveyards of Paris
The steps leading
Along to the Latin Quarter.

Here the accident of love
Entraps, all by accident –
justification is sort. Later.


The benches of Amsterdam.
Grey and blue.
She requires, just what is required.

She tells in her eyes.
As the water creeps along
they pass in opposing ways.


The roads of Rome.
Hard as tacks.
Hard as their Latin.

Hard as their history.
Now this malleable
city of passion – encompasses.


Just an afterthought.
Thrown together – a collage.
Here is where the minds meet.

This hard undercurrent.
As hard as everywhere.
The sensation is lost.

Paris (again)

Weight of responsibly, now gone
The city divided by chambers
And stairs dividing everyone else.

They must return
to this place.  That is the start
of their journey.  Their beginning.
