Thalia (A Comedy)

Jean-Michel Maulpoix

Your little girl laugh. Out of breath and laughing did you run towards me with laced boots on your feet proclaiming love everywhere?

The laughing way you have of tilting your head in order to uncover from below: lifting the mask, searching the face and looking for a bit of sparkle in the eye. You are hide-and-seek playful. Always on the look out. Less curious about failings than properties. Admiring different behaviors and human affairs in their plasticity.

Translated from the French by Dawn Cornelio
