Daniel Pels


 un défiléà à cheval
trottant dans les rues de la ville
galopant dans la champagne s’éloigne
disparait  est oublié
sauf la merde qui reste derrière  

qu’on appelle regrets  


a parade on horseback
trotting through city streets
galloping once on its outskirts
disappears and is forgotten
except for the shit left behind  

called regrets
