It’s a fucking curse
Seeing through the other’s eyes
And having mirrors.
Venue: The Doors Coffeeshop, Amsterdam
Review/notes: I know loads of people get high right out on the streets in Amsterdam, but that is technically illegal and I’ve been busted for it twice already (typical Dutch police response, “if I find you doing this again I will have to write you a ticket”). Out in quiet suburban neighbourhoods I’m pretty comfortable with it but there is too much to keep your eye on in central Amsterdam so I popped into a coffeeshop intending to get a coffee and a pastry; the Doors, however, had a full size bar set up inside (kind of a rarity). Plus, it was peaceful with me the only smoker this morning. Perfect.
The haiku came to me on the plane home…never look in the mirror on mushrooms.
