poem: Au Paradis

Title: Au Paradis
Fandom: Les Enfants du Paradis
Length: 25 words
Content notes: no warnings apply
Author note: written for the Up challenge at [community profile] fan_flashworks; this one is for [personal profile] kalypso
Summary: The actor envies the mime artist, but should he?

Up in the gods, they understand:
no need for words, Baptiste - they see
your love and your despair in turn
and laugh at both impartially.


Inspired by Frédérick's speech to Baptiste: "Tu parles avec tes jambes, tu réponds avec tes mains, un haussement d'épaules, deux pas en avant ou en arrière, et ils ont compris, au paradis!" (You talk with your legs, you answer with your hands, a shrug of the shoulders, two steps forward or backwards and they understand, up in the gods.)
