Slapped in Paris

I'm in Paris right now
it's early afternoon I
just had some cheese and bread
earlier I fought with a man
literally over the clout
of his books and his chug-a-lug
so it ended with him slapping me
and me walking away
to buy a newspaper to swat him with
I ended up walking along the bank
of that river with a camera and the
stuff I saw in the water was surprising
a woman asked me if I was German
in German and then I sat down and
wrote a letter to my Father
thinking about how much Paris
is like Des Moines
even with the tower looming
in the background of
a man slapping me in Paris.

I found Paris more like Ottumwa than Des Moines.
Des Moines reminds me of me.

Uncle T,

When are you going to get your sorry ass to la Ville Lumière?
