Poetry (81)

Hello Escritori,

If you’re a regular reader you will know that I occasionally have thespian tendencies and like doing voices (and voice-overs) quite a lot.

I recently played around with a character. Her voice gave rise to this poem, which is basically her backstory.


Le Histoire de Lila Appel

Je m’appelle Lila Appel

Je suis une Juif

De Nouvelle York.

Et Mademoiselle Appel

Est seulement une petite pomme

Dans le ville avec la meme nomme.

Curieuse… in being a kind of fruit.


Day by day, and by degrees

Elle sens,

L’appel de vide

C’est trés forte


Comme le deuxième

Battement de coeur

D’un enfant malveillant

À l’intérieur

De moi.


Mais, alors,

Si c’est possible

Dans cette acte

Conserver la desir



And by so doing

To resolve the whole

That battles to stay authentic

With a nature bilingual

Et un humour depressif

Mais toutefois

Trés drôle

Maybe she’ll end up being fleshed out in some story or other, but this is her tale for now.
