Plainspeaking – Bombay, March 2002

Je t’aime, I told her, is I love you, in French

There are better things, she said, we could do in French.

Eu te amo is Italian, or Portuguese even,

She said and then,

Are you even sure? Does it even matter?

I love yous are a waste of time.

You speak too much

Of words that need no words.
