poem
The wine-drinkers sit on the porte cochère in the sun. 
Their lack of success in love has made them torpid. 
They move their fans with a motion that stirs no feather, 
the glare of the sun has darkened their complexions.

Let us commend them on their conversations. 
One says "oh" and the other says "indeed."
