France in the Point of Life

We are having French class

Down the street from shack houses

With those fenced-in, chain link front yards

Where Pit Bulls smile with tooth-sharpened vigor

Inside our class, it’s a smacking reminder of the late sixties

And the color-coded dreamers that made it out of here

The Eiffel Tower is taped on the wall
