Back to Old Montreal

we are heading back to Old Montreal
back to
René Lévesque Boulevard
the Notre-Dame Basilica
with a walk along the St. Lawrence

have scoured for a better hotel
where cheap french wine and Molson with an accent
can have proper refrigeration
instead of another cooling register by window

once again
out our window we will be able to see the roof top of
China Town
we will walk 10 minutes to the museum
witness the tour of Rodin – commit passion to memory
and honest raw love_to reality

we will order in cheap grub
you will speak the language of a single province
and i will point at pictures on the menu
we are heading back to Old Montreal
where the landscape of Kingston and France came together and
said ‘ lets mingle’ ….’lets be like Rodin and create battling love’

for a weekend
you and i will leave Canada behind
bring a 7 year memory back across cobblestone
back over 401 hwy
and see nothing but one another_until check out time…..
