The sweet Paris I always wanted,
The beautiful Frenchwoman with Thai eyes,
That I wanted to understand,
Walking the streets that are not yours,
Who are from Algeria yes.
What plurality and anxiety left in me.
If it were not for the Tower he would say to be in an endless East.
In Dublin or Lisbon even Rome or Madrid.
Sweet Paris that I always wanted,
I do not think I've ever been here.
( Francisco Gouveia Brasil)
