LINDA COLLINS

 

On hearing Carla Bruni’s “Quelqu’un m’a dit

 

There’s something so intimate

about the liaison in that phrase,

tu m’aimes encore

 

the secret “s”,

usually hidden

 

like the heart,

which is always there

but only occasionally

 

makes a public

appearance.

 


Lynda Collins is a poet and environmental law professor based in Ottawa, Canada.
