Te Aro 20

The Left Bank makes a stab at Parisian
intellectual ferment but on wet days
it is rather rivers generally which
are evoked, the hotchpotch of shops
and cafés seeming more than ever
provisional, ambiguous and the two
police officers striding through the pools
and shadows of the loading zone could have
been supposed from some metaphysical
task force charged with maintaining reality,
if themselves looking a little too much
a piece of theatre, their gait liable to
become corrupted into Singin' in
the Rain-style hoofing at any lamp post.
