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 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.

    General CommentSeems pretty self-explanatory. An ex-lover visits him talking about what she's been up to. He asks her why she left him so suddenly, and she avoids the question, asking for tea and leaving. It seems that she's also an idiot (It took her years to learn that there were no pyramids in Belgium).
