Scott McKendry Three Poems

Taken so he’d never forget, there’s a photo of Monsieur Forgèt
sat outside Shakespeare and Company
the afternoon he sipped black coffee and smoked roll-ups –

a modest fantasy, now fulfilled –

taking in the scene: the recently-burnt-out Notre-Dame
Searching, please wait... animated waiting image
