At het quay

Were there demons in her mind
since she settled on the fifth
in that attic at the quay
where a car has been coupé?

Sebastian and Isabel were living there
until they vanished somewhere
in the jungle of Peru
and no one has a clue

Now this woman on the blanket: why?
Some neighbours watch and so do I
One of them is pointing where she stood
thus I understand the dented hood

When the ambulance is driving away
the officers can write their résumé
they only must research the motive
and whether there's a relative

What went wrong across the street?
Didn't anybody see her need
standing there, the city at her feet?
