Is Paris Bleeding?

Bill Costley




A million parisiens stand
facing the Tour Eiffel
shutting down quickly
on a massive film noir,

minus tourists,
minus frivolity.
What's amusant about
Charlie Hebdo now?

Rien. (Nothing) Rien.
Millions of copies of its
next edition will absorb
its dry editorial sang.

Paris is media-sanglant
The world, sympathique.
