‘In Paris With You’ by James Fenton

‘In Paris With You’

by James Fenton

“Don’t talk to me of love. I’ve had an earful
And I get tearful when I’ve downed a drink or two.
I’m one of your talking wounded.1923562_16257730491_2145_n
I’m a hostage. I’m maroonded.
But I’m in Paris with you…”

You can read the complete poem here. Earlier this month James Fenton was awarded the 2015 PEN Pinter Prize. You can read more of his works with Surrey Libraries.
