Guy LaFleur

Language is every thing
Words is thinking
Thinking is words
Awkward things – the unsayable
Said
Sometimes goes unsaid
Signifiant
Signifie
You said how
How I did feel
Then you threw
My ring into the darkness of the orchard
In my best school boy bluster –
French paroxysm –
I bellowed without thinking
et la troisième
étoile
est
Guy Flower!
And you walked
Walked away hunching your shoulders
In disgust you said – or
I think you said –
You were going back
Back to Paris
