Les Merton

 

 

 

 



    Hammamet Medina

     

    In a narrow alley

    I pause to enjoy

    sweet smelling jasmine:

     

    A young boy slips

    his soft hand into mine.

     'Amour, amour,' he smiles

    through worldly eyes.

     

    I shake my head.

    'English, ' he confirms

    with a nod and tugs my arm

    'Come... come. Enjoy

    couscous with Maria.
