Le garçon et le fil.

I dreamed of a man on wire
Who walked between two spires
And all about his ankles
Were looks of unbelieving Priests

Across a harbor bridge
Boats swooned beneath his feet
Wire held by Zeus and Hera
Each step precisely beat

Beside the Chrysler building
Lady Liberty below
Le garçon et le fil
A cunning circus show

And now I, here on the ground
Though not with my own eyes
Sit awestruck by the story
Of the man who danced the skies.

———

If you wish to be amazed, hunt down a documentary called “Man On Wire.”
