canal de l ourq reaching north
for the bonlieu to come

below la petit ceinture, the track that was
traverse the river
towards buttes chaumont along rue de crimeé
no 93
through gates, on cobblestones, some steps to reach
a fortress of a wooden wonder stands in its height
its standing still

surrounded by houses, by gardens

small and delicate and rich

you are to enter below its carvings
into a single hall of width and depth
candles and all voices melting into calm

lean your forehead on the icon
kiss its surface
choose your rhyme – light a candle for the beloved , for their protection
let go for it and give it time


wear a headscarf for the entry and a skirt prolongued -for female
and for everyone, your hands exposed at all times inside, no hats
