Solitude

Seven hundred thousand women live single in Paris
Their age between thirty and forty
Unmarried, divorced, or
Mothers
The voice of the announcer was so neutral
Chewing this plain number from among the many details of modern life
Closing the news with it
Seven hundred thousand single women
O man!
And for four hours you have been tormenting yourself before a computer
In search of good sentences that express hard life without a woman.

---Abdel-ilah Salhi
