夏日菜單

擊掌的瞬間,我知道我們會有段故事,你張開雙臂向我招手。走在路上,你牽著腳踏車同時牽 著我的手,柏林天氣涼爽剛入秋,我心裡滿是驚艷。 剛到你家,你問,「肚子餓嗎?」我點頭如搗瑞,你馬上領我走進廚房,輕快地拿起雜糧吐司 、煙燻鮭魚、檸檬、黑胡椒罐、奶油、水煮花椰菜,看我笨拙的塗抹奶油,你笑著搖頭,接手 幫我塗滿整片吐司。那頓宵夜,後來成為我最愛的練舞點心。 我們選了一樣的咖啡館。我穿著一身黑準備晚點隨時出去玩,你在對街牽著亮眼的新腳踏車, 臉上堆滿笑意。走進你說的咖啡廳門口一看,才發現上次看展時我也跟朋友來了這裡,老闆甚 至教我怎麼說Wie viel kostet es,這種巧合就跟我好幾次在Neukölln及Mitte街上,遇到老早在 台灣認識的朋友一樣,驚訝著柏林的小,還有那種往往有緣才能感受到的愛,非常溫暖。移動 到附近公園,我情不自禁的往草皮一躺,你坐著回頭看我說,想拍一張我跟你腳踏車的合照, 我笑而不答。你最後沒拍,反而幫我按摩起來。 每次有人說alright我就想起你,你的聲音跳進我的腦袋。我是平靜的,然而那些甜美的回憶尚 未沈寂,滑進深色的意識湖水。或許因為那是你第一晚說過的話,我記得你說自己還沒看到柏 林的夏日日落。你向我靠近,就在那個陽台上,我們的腿都向兩旁伸展,坐在人工草皮上的肌 膚觸感猶在。 第一次吃到久違的麻婆豆腐,是在G邀請我去的potluck style dinner party, 就是大家都帶一份 自己做的料理分享,那是我吃過最難忘的版本。當晚有辣椒加起司的開胃菜、德國雜糧麵包、 舊金山版炒香菇、混了超多豆類的雙版本雜糧飯、草莓水蜜桃沙拉、巧克力、酸辣湯、還有我 的最愛麻婆豆腐。意外的,所有料理配在一起很對味。在那裡遇到的所有人,還有聚會後跑來 找我的K,都是搬來柏林或曾住過柏林的藝術家,酒足飯飽後,我們擠在狹小的陽台抽煙閒聊 。這個城市,大家來來去去,但那些愛,無須言語就讓我打從心裡暖暖的。

憶鴉埠

我想念的不是台北那座城市,而是你的臉與午後傘下走進的《鴉埠咖啡》。座落在師大後巷的小角落,那裡的咖啡好濃好醒,我常正中午做到收店,看書、寫字,喝咖啡,久坐不離。吧台前有著長長綿綿的吧台坐,我喜歡跟那邊的咖啡師與交談,熟捻起來咖啡廳就像家裡客廳,好不自在。進店裡就能看見鎮店的長木桌,凹凸有致還留著古樹的風采。角落坐著幾張方正的書櫃,我遇上《項塔蘭》,心想著自己的印度行何時發生。印度還沒去呢,長長久久的旅行,我也踏了三年。再次拾起《當你途經我的盛放》,我想起你說過的話:「你要學會柔軟。」話放在心裡,我瘋也瘋過了,在歐洲異地終於學會了謙卑。
