A zapach ci poślę, zapach tych nocy, które rozcięte przemi-
jają pomiędzy nami, jak pomiędzy dwoma brzegami mija rzeka.

And I will send the scent to you, the scent of these nights,
which sliced open pass between us like a river passes between two banks.

    We sail smooth

    runners iced and swelled,

    in teas of black

    with Chinese talk-talk.

    Lay your hands on me,

    such smoothness tickles;

    my fuzz and temptations –

    you feel.

    It’s our room on

    Boulevard Saint-Germain

    where hush-hush is

    our language of

    blushed romance

    and foreign lip-lock.

    Les femmes de la noir –

    tenez ma queue et tordez.

    We watch the sky

    and count the drops and

    swirl our fingers over cups

    and sculptured hair.

    Saturday afternoons on

    Boulevard Saint-Germain.
