My attempt at a French version of an unpublished poem, "The Mime's Grand Finale." It seemed apropos.


Le Mime's Grand Finale
[French translation of unpublished poem, "The Mime's Grand Finale" -- purchase of the album comes with English lyrics.]

J'ai regardé la chute du mime
Du haut de la Tour Eiffel

Son expression sombre

Comme il pawed à sa prison de l'air
Et a couru contre le vent

jusqu'au bout

Son éclat bruyant
Rompu avec la tradition

Avant que ses bras se tordissent aux coudes

Comme s'il nageait
Dans la flaque même qu'il est devenu

jusqu'au bout
