Me and jelle encounter his ex girlfriend at Cafe Belgium.
everyone hopes thier boyfriend thinks
you've redeemed his life for good.
a savior from his frigid ex,
one who freed him from a bitch.
but when you meet an ex-lover,
who studies hyrdoscience,
and her friend who
works at the EU,
and her skin is cream and clear,
and her eyes are deep and dark,
it punctures your heart.
and I'm silent on the bus ride home.
cause we were being seated,
when he ran into this girl.
so we joined them at the bar
and he bought them both a beer.
and we talked until 2 minutes after the kitchen had closed,
so we were turned away.
And after kissing cheeks goodbye
Most restaurants were locked,
except for one Greek restaurant
where one can dine well after nine.
where palm trees sway
by candle light
and the meal was more delicious
than if it were belgian cuisine
and I found hope in seeing that
beneath that cold rejection,
and thereby being forced to leave,
we were warmly taken in,
by the mediterranean.
