Conduisez A Paris

ses Champs

son stationnement

ses papillons
(leurs battements)
(leurs ecrasements)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Drive In Paris

its Champs

its parking

its butterflies
(their fluttering)
(their splattering)

a project to design a poster encouraging taking your car into Paris.

Parking tickets in Paris are called papillons, butterflies: for the way they flutter in the breeze under your windscreen wiper; or, for the way they get smashed on your windscreen.

'A' has an acute in the French, as has the first 'e' in 'ecrasements'.
Champs=...Elysses.
