rendezvous cafe: whitley bay

I would like us to meet
where the Horlicks is sweet.

I could tell you my story
with a knickerbocker glory.

Talk of mermaids all day
spooning pear parfait.

Licking ninety-nine cones
we could turn off our phones.

Smile, perhaps disappear,
with a chocolate eclair.

Rendez Vous with the sea
and the sugary breeze.

Come eat strawberry flan
while we can, while we can.

by Julia Darling, 2003
