Montréal, Mon Chéri
Ah Mont Réal, my Montréal!
To tell the truth
Today makes 6 years since I first discovered you,
And your pulsating presence.
The love/hate relationship
That I have with you
Is nothing new.
Saints and sinners
Residing under one "Royal" roof
Holds the proof
Of your allure.
You entice with your joie de life.
You entice with your sly, yet sweet come hither smile.
Then you steal away (my) inspiration for months on end, for months and a day.
Held captive by your seductive summers
And your bustling inner city vibe,
Radiating with colours and
Of urban, latin, jazz, rock, reggae
In a state of barely there, almost undress I'd sway.
Then suddenly, inspiration you'd return in some unique style.
Perhaps on a warm, neon bright night on St. Catherine or St. Laurent street
Or when some blue eyed gar catches my eye.
Inspiration, come when may.
Perhaps from your eclectic cultural array...
Mmmm, such a mouth watering, cosmopolitan flavour to savour.
