Bounch of poets.
Even the bartender was performing his verses:
“Elle fait l’eour de l’horloge
Veut à tout prix prendre le large
S’aidant de quelques arpèges
Pour oser tournee la page.”
Troy was there:
“Punching you on the face is fulfilling.”
And Caesar, Alexa, Miss Peacock, Nicolas, Magalì,
The psichedelic brainwasher Michele, Chris to the Newens, and Benjamin,
Bibù, Natascha from Russia, and Tyler:
“The debris of our collision seems to have been tidied.
Heat and noise have come to occupy your place.
Deceived again by my dreams, I surrender myself back to sleep.
It is there, after all, that you seem to exist.”
The Maxx, and to close the night, Suzanne.
She’s one of the Spoken Word’s favorites. We gonna miss her.
See you soon.
Or to use Alexa’s word:
“She brings out the best in me
We like ze wine and ze chat ah oui oui oui!!!
she’ll always be true blue to me
Cuz she’s a solid gold girl, a California Girl like me.
She’s a California sunset in Paris…
a star in the noontime sky
a taco full of laughter in a coffee shop in Amsterdam
a short ride on a long rollercoaster at midnight
Forever Bopping on
Hopping on the metro to the next dream…
See you soon Golden girl.”
