new wine in old skins

paris. once. a long time ago.

There are things people do
When they are first in love

They surprise each other
With trips to Paris
They make reservations
At impossibly expensive

They have conversations
About former lovers
While they eat

All of these things can happen
After years of marriage as well
But the chances
Are infinitely


Found in « Eat Memory: The Paris Match » by Anne Patchett in the Sunday New York Times Magazine.

Patchett's piece is a really wonderful read.
