Prompt: 1920's Paris cafe, cat, bottle of wine Line count: 32
I walked along the Boulevard Saint-Germain
a weary tourist traveling in time
wanting to rest
before returning
to the twenty-first century.

I came to the corner
of Boulevard Saint-Germain
and the Rue Saint-Benoît,
the Café de Flore,
with its outdoor tables
beckoned me to pause
and rest my aching feet.

All the tables,
except one,
were occupied
by couples planning
romantic rendezvous.

Alone,
at a table near the door,
sat a Polydactyl cat;
I stroked the creatures dark head
and then lower my aching body
into the chair next to him.

A waiter soon brought
a bottle of wine,
two glasses,
and a note that read:
"Please don't give
Ernest Hemingway Cat
more the one glass of wine
or he is yours
for the rest of time."
