Jean Pierre Quivlok

lives by the sea
in a small coastal town
his bedroom
faces france
and every morning
when he rises from his bed
he looks at his mother country
and sheds a tear
as he is an emotional man
during mists and fogs
he imagines his childhood
before he moved to england
and married lucy on demand
she shuns him now
and has become a celebrated television cook
jean pierre quivlok is a rich man
as he inherited his fathers fortune
yet his quiet loneliness puzzles many
i am his dearest friend
and i hope that one day
that he will find it in his heart
to love me so that i may live with him
in the apartment that faces the sea
