Jacques Prévert: Breakfast

21 August 2018


He put the coffee
In the cup
He put the milk
In the cup of coffee
He put the sugar
In the café au lait
With the coffee spoon
He stirred
And drank the café au lait
And he put down the cup
Without speaking to me
He lit
A cigarette
He blew rings
Of smoke
He put the ash
In the ashtray
Without speaking to me
Without looking at me
He stood up
He put his
Hat on his head
He put his
Raincoat on
Since it was raining
And he left
In the rain
Without a word
Without looking at me
And I, I put my head
In my hands
And wept.
