Tanith dropped by today
Like, I hadn't seen her in years
But there she was at my front door
In her colonial helmet

Custom made Burmese fan
Poised in one hand
Ready to swipe at any passing disease-ridden mosquito

She'd been in Belgium, she told me
Studying the pyramids
It took her years to find out
That there were no pyramids in Belgium

I asked her why she left me so suddenly
Why she'd been silent for so long

Didn't I exist for her?
Didn't we have something, well, special?

She asked me for tea in a plastic cup
With a well-fitting lid

Then she left
