The Latin Quarter

A certain place in this bed
offers a nightlife spilling onto the streets,
bars, bistros, nightclubs and girls working
until four in the morning
when the dead marines
overcome the music
and sleep seems like a better idea.

The lingua franca of my Latin Quarter
cannot be found
in your common or garden dictionary;
it takes two to speak this tongue
with the fluency of a you and a me.
