Most connoisseurs of culture come
For cinematic reasons
To absorb this city, this sea-side town.
I have come by accident
To have my ass repaired
My anus reupholstered.
Can a can in Cannes come clean
Can the corn?
No, it wasn’t the result
Nothing romantic ever happens to me.
It was just a fistula in ano,
A large zit, every bit,
Which bit me in the can in Cannes.
