collage of woman touching a little bell on the outside of a

Tinkled the Bell

her new world swayed gently. in the unfamiliar light. unfamiliar sounds. below.
le boulevard, les magasins, un parc, des voitures. et une église. ( these words she had learnt ) she glanced in the mirror. tinkled the bell. waited as monsieur. madame et les
enfants. chose her name. decided which of their favourite songs. they would teach her
to sing.
