Locked in this sea of oil paint and perfume
I danced with a girl in front of Mona Lisa
We laughed and made the guard smile
And agreed to dine at a street cafe
But that kiss
As much as it teased our hard bodies
And tempted our mortal souls
Became a fragment vanished
In the pieces scattered that fateful night
When amoral monsters made
A restaurant into a cemetery.
