there is something about the way people articulate themselves on parisian streets
that floods out reality.  that supersedes the usual walkway current:
not just people going, or coming, arriving or departing,
 but people expectant of a significant and valuable interruption.

Legs scissor and feet point and angle themselves as if perpetually perched over one inch of sky.
Floating, flow.
 Everyone nurses a break-out plan.

Everyone surges. A vital, earthy eruption.

while I walk with a gait akin to a continuous apologetic curtsy, (sorry sorry sorry)
they float. I marvel, I watch. 

and I will watch
and I will watch
I will
watch until I understand.

'til i can catch this current too, and follow the watercourse to one inch above
