Moulin Rouge 

Moulin Rouge

The missing French artist
was
last seen
in Montmartre
he was staggering on notorious streets of sex.

Later, he has been found in a cathouse
safe but not sound;
he was shaken
confused
not
knowing
where he was
what he had been doing

Likely, Madame Moulin Rouge fed him too much condensed milk
then she laid him on a slippery silky sheet
in a warm bed.
the damned mattress bounced so hard
ups
‘n downs
too many rounds
it made him feel ill
really sea-sick
out
of whack,
like having been riding on a merry-go-round for so long.
he was fallen into hallucination
that sex without love
“la vie”
is
“en rose”

Hey,
next time
if you happen to be in Paris
try to ask any sexy French lady in the old Moulin Rouge
the silly question:”voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?”
of course
you would be so insanely joyful
that you totally forget your way home.
