Public visitation, we met at Borders

Meaning

He has to meet up with his ex in a public place to insure that nothing gets out of hand. They are discussing if they should get back together.

Borders was a chain of book stores. Compared to the outlandish materialism and bragging of other Kanye lyrics, this image of a meeting at a chain bookstore stands out as surprisingly common and everyday.

It also represents the “borders” (barriers) that exist following a life-changing mistake. They make it so much more difficult to get back to normal
