Le cahier de Montréal - On writing

My feelings
Anxietys and fears
Are big city born
Children of heroes
Of London and New York

I’ve seen too many castles
To go back to my village
Even if it’s the village of a million

I cannot unsee it
Now I’m in Montreal
In search of Cohen,
The Laurentians
Of course they’re not here
They left for the same reasons.
