  • Hello. 24 hours of travel time.
    A little layover in Switzerland.
    Belle and Sebastian. Just for you.

    Happy Birthday I said.
    You had an igloo cake, and a party at the Armani night club.
    And a fancy office, filled with fragments I had sent you,
    over the past years. From the other side of the world.
    You do think of me too, I see.

    "Take me to see where 'real' people live," I asked.
    "Okay," you said.
    And we saw rugs and some boats
    and some vendors. A grocery store giving away a car.
    And golden toothbrushes.
