If I could

If I could
I would dance in Rome
Write about the vino
And the lovemaking
Under the bridge

If I could
I would stroll the Seine
Paint the catacombs
A bright, cherry red
For my lover

If I could
I would conquer Manhattan
Devour all the oysters
Until I could no more
If only I could

–Victoria Emmons, 2014
