“Ici Dépot”, but only when is the store open?

“We’d stopped to look inside before
The windows of the other stores
But at this one here we stayed awhile
We stood to stare, and wish, and smile.”

(W. McGehee in Window shopping)

Our little shopping district

"We had a nice little shopping district,
but the anger boiled over in the ‘60s.
Some young fools and Panthers tore up MacDonald,
the flames gutting doorways and dreams.
But no Phoenix arose here; we just sank deeper into the mud."

(M. Abel in Lonnie (Richmond))

My pâtisserie is unfortunately closed


“Treats and sweets and tortes and cakes
Cherries, berries, chocolate flakes
My firm resolutions break
Goodness, oh, for goodness sake!”

Ici, crédit pour tous!


“Die grösste Kunst ist Geld zu machen,

aufs Geld kommt endlich alles an.
Wer dieses Handwerk nicht verstehet,
und mit der Weisheit betteln gehet,
der ist wahrhaftig schlimm daran.”

(G. Ph. Telemann in the song Geld)

It’s too cold to hold you almost naked


“You think she’s yours, to have and to hold
Someday you’ll learn, when her love grows cold
But I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her.”

(Bob Dylan in I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her)
