I said – I LOVE YOU – babe (Shopping at Lafferty’s poem)

shopping Montreal boutiques
in a language un-our-own
-in the grunge of the day

then drive to Quebec our Canadian
European border

there you’ll find me
waiting in the crowd for you

i’m dressed in Lafferty
this shirt and tie

– Ontario import
(with) blue running shoes

let’s disappear
leave family behind
-for just a moment

press your uniform
feel my fine threads
let me touch your face

je t’aime

i said
-i love you babe

let’s get back in line
back with the crowd
and stand among family

i’m dressed in Lafferty
you’re dressed in Air Force blues

je t’aime

in Montreal through St.Jean

-i’m finally with you….
