french word of the week: mezzanine

i tried another laundry.
a few days ago.
i thought i'd be smart.
it promised to be cheaper.
it wasn't.
of course not.

i went in.
bonsoir madame.
but the answer came from a rough manly voice.
or years of whiskey and tabacco abuse.
many years.

ja klar.

the french had some strong asian accent.
not really understandable.
at least for me.
but he wouldn't stop talking.

ly kim told me
his/her son maybe daughter,
i'm not too sure,
is going to study economics.
to work for bnp paribas.
ly kim thinks nothing of
marketing or management.
he/she made that clear.
the room in the back
ly kim could only reach
through a 20cm gap
between the washing machines.

ly kim was coughing the whole time.
even if he/she wasn't smoking
at all.
i'm still not sure what gender
ly kim belongs to.

room floor is clear,
closet refilled.

the internet.
