– I’m fucked
– Then come talk to me
He rolled me a cig and I found out he was half Irish
we went inside
he gave me shots
then it was my turn
3 a.m., places close
he switched to French / asked me to come over
C’est ton choix
After a while I found him there
he showed me inside effortlessly
all that time I struggled for us to meet
seemed but a minor misunderstanding.
