vitrine

on parlait

d’un futur

un futur

qui

n’arriverait

jamais

si la vie

se déroulait

comme

on écrivait

comme

une histoire

une filme

fantastique

peut-être

on aurait eu

une chance

magnifique

mais la vie

c’est une

vitrine

ouverte

en fait et

on peut

simplement

vivre

la vérité


Traduction/translation


we talked

about

the future

a future which

would never

arrive

if life

unfolded

as we wrote

as a story

a fantastical

film perhaps

we would

have had

a magnificent

chance

but life

in fact

is an

open

showcase

& we can

only

live

in honesty
