Père Lachaise Triolet By Jennifer L. Gauthier

Père Lachaise Triolet 
  
Edith Piaf, Gertrude Stein, and Colette 
get together in the graveyard after dark,
with wine and cheese and coins for a bet.
Edith Piaf, Gertrude Stein and Colette
share their secrets and a game of roulette 
on a dusty patch of grass in the park.
Edith Piaf, Gertrude Stein and Colette
get together in the graveyard after dark.
