We all want to visit impossible cities

“Give me the impossible city, the perfect Paris,
its people wearing shoes made of saltwater,
its streets full of whipped cream and opera,
its fire-breathing street vendors selling
both balloons and bourbon bottles.
Give me books written on illuminated
garlic skin by domesticated foxes;
the cloud-breaking Eiffel Tower
afloat on the buttery backs of croissants.”

I love the poem “Trips to Impossible Cities” by , and not just because of the nod to The Mona Lisa Sacrifice!

(Photo is of me in a gallery in Paris, many ages ago. Long before I’d dreamed up Cross and The Mona Lisa Sacrifice!)

About Peter Darbyshire (Roman)

Nothing to see here. Move along.
