France sounds like a young poet's love serenade,
France tastes like the fragile crust of a morning baguette,
France feels like freedom of French revolutions…

My brother asked for money

So he could buy a Ferrari
He thought it'd be funny
Then he was stuck in the gummies

In the night sky

each star glows differently,
reflecting each fate.
Under the snow
there is something alive
and it is snowdrop.
