2 Euros

“A lovely flower for a lovely lady…”
“No, merci,” but a persistent, opportunistic
man wins out, and she is left holding
a very expensive gift she did not want;
would not have asked for, and he is left
digging in his pocket for 2 euros
they would rather have put toward
a café au lait and uncomplicated romance.

"Home is ever so far away in the palm of your hand, and how to get there it is of no use to tell you. But you will get there; you must get there; you have to get there. Everybody who is not at home, has to go home."
