True Story of an Incident at Chateau de Vincennes with the Daughter of a Chinese Opera Star~by Will James

True Story of an Incident at Chateau de Vincennes with the Daughter of a
Chinese Opera Star

She hovered around me for hours
in the rain
talking about heaven and God

and apparitions and signs;
and after that,
she took off her wet, black stockings

in the bathroom of a cafe,
and then reappeared without them
as if no one would ever notice.
