"Le... Dragon"...

Loomed... large...

Formidable...

Its... huge head...

Its body... rippling...

Undulating... gliding...

Effortlessly... confidently...

Through the streets of Chinatown... in Paris...

We were... ecstatic...

The... Dragon...

Has always been... a powerful symbol of China...

In fact... we were celebrating the...

Chinese New Year 2014...

Chantecler Tango... at Théâtre du Châtelet...

As... the curtain...

Of... the splendid...

Slowly... lifted...

We... the enthralled...

Parisian... audience...

Were transported... to the mythical cabaret...

Chantecler...

In... Buenos Aires...

Upon... alighting...

From... the metro at the...

We came upon... a group of...

Musicians...

Free... free from all that shackles... the spirit...

Free... from troubles... of the weary soul...

I... was dancing...

Swaying...

Pirouetting... flying...

Is not really my type at all.

I am terribly attracted to tall, gaunt, darkly handsome, long, thatchy haired (preferably peppery white), cultured, slightly moody, enigmatic, discreet men.

"Gainsbourg" is nothing like that.

With a black head-dress... worn in the Arabian fashion...

Onto the darkened stage...
