shaken, not stirred

in the shadow of the westerkerk: not only the statue of anne frank, and the homo-monument, but also the rickety ruins of what used to be a well-known caribbean restaurant. cockatoos used to crow here, and colourful cocktails used to be shaken, but there is nothing exotic about it now. it has been let go*, and it was a quick and easy undoing; unlike the soaring tower of the church, which was built to last centuries, this precarious structure flourished no longer than its popularity and its positive reviews.
