Pascale Doxy: La Quête

Certaines vies ne sont que des partitions sans notes
Un tango dansé solo
Dans les rues d’un univers étrange

Certaines vies ne sont que des chansons fredonnées
Dans des illusions physiques
Un opéra tragicomique aux octaves de plus en plus aiguës

Ma vie j’apprends à la bandonéoner
Un pas lent, diésé
Pour rythmer une certaine existence

J’ai perdu ma voix
Dans une marrée de répétitions exotiques
Mes rêves de soleil tropical
Se sont égarés dans des tonnes de neige

Le froid a gelé mes habitudes
Mes pensées ne sont que mécanisme
Mes pieds s’entremêlent au passé
Se chaussent d’antiquité
Cherchent un port d’attache
Une manière de jeter l’encre

Un pas de deux qui s’exécute solo
Dans un port d’un univers étrange

Following the 2010 earthquake, Pascale moved to Florida, where she has showcased her paintings and poems about the tragedy. She is currently planning other exhibits and looking forward to publishing her children and young adult stories.
