La Femme

La Femme is a French psych-pop outfit formed by keyboard player Marlon Magnée and guitarist Sacha Got in Biarritz. 

And now, a poem.

Roses are sad, violets are too, my only hope, is to melt into you. Orchids are white, ghosts are rarely blue, your smile is lovely, and so are you. Magnolias grow, with tiny buds of clay. The road is long, and so is the day.

Sunflowers reach, up to the night sky, as the red door awaits, the mockingbird cries. My eyes in her eyes. Her lips against mine. I melted like sunshine, and moved like a mime.

Foxes in hedges, surround the farm. Your body is slender, and so are her arms. Daisies are pretty and daffodils are mild, but the hibiscus flower will never fade out of style.

The day is warm, and so is your smile. My angel from Saturn. My nocturnal desire. Never leave, or I’ll drown in the wild.

An ocean so beautiful, lights up the night sky, the neon light burns a lucid hole through her eyes.
