Mardi-gras is coming soon this year

Went out together for a brisk walk into the cold night
Our breaths like fog out of our mouths,
all along the way.

Near home, two women, with infinite care
Strapped a baby’s chair to a car seat, then hugged and kiss :
- Good night, good night
Another passerby, also looked, you could sense, how
he too felt enveloped by the warmth of their tenderness.
From a window shop a pirate stared unmoved,
Mardi-gras is coming soon this year.
