Painting by Fabien Perez

Rencontre de hasard
Parler de tout, de rien,
Prendre un verre de vin
Dans la froideur d’un bar.

Un orchestre criard
Qui n’a rien de divin.
Tout cela est bien vain,
Que faire dans ce bazar?

Vouloir tromper l’ennui,
L’espace d’une nuit
En se laissant aller.

Se perdre dans le bruit,
Ne pas croquer le fruit,
Surtout ne pas chialer.

Naiveté

I have a certain naiveté
even after all these years.
I find it hard to accept
that others can be cunning,
devious, even ruthless,
thus fall into the trap again.

I don’t think it is because
I need to be a victim but rather
have retained a child-like
wonder of the beauty of the
world that our Creator has
given us.

Lord, protect my naiveté
and deliver me from cynicism.
Let me remain a believer
in the Tooth Fairy
and the goodness of man.
