Hi, it’s me. Really, it was great to see you
again. Our time together is always brief, I
know, but at least this time I made time to
sit back and think. Enjoy myself. Indulge in
beers and long walks on the beach. I liked
those moments we had alone together. Sunsets
yes, legions now, catalogued by my no-longer
functioning camera. Duty-free Jenever and no
tears at Schipol, our final conversation one
gigantic “O”. The way histories can collide,
intersecting with sunshine, cloud and brine.
Vast as magnetic fields, thin turbine-blades.
Thanks once again for everything you did that
day. Let’s catch up again soon. Doei doei!
