    Windows to another world

    The paintings on the wall
    Were windows to another world
    Except they weren't.
    The wine had a bouquet
    Of chocolate and plums
    If you thought of chocolate and plums
    Whilst trying to forget.
    I'm pretty sure the sex was unforgettable.
    Dylan or Young or springsteen
    Serenaded our evening.
    It was a tropical storm
    A balmy night
    Blanketed in snow.
    It was all new,
    Great to be back at the old place.
    I told you I loved you
    You said
    Who are you?
    I told you I wasn't really there
    I was actually at home on the sofa
    Imagining this
    You said you were my waitress
    I said we should have children
    You said it was over
    So I went to the pub where I met Mary
    Mother of God
    I bought her cheesy chips
    And we kissed with tongues
    And cheese
    My brother wanted Mary
    The moment she was mine
    And I had trees to climb
    And dogs to kick,
    Water to pour from jug to jug
    Trains to watch arriving at stations
    Hats to wear
    Shadows to measure
    Time to run through my fingers
    Love to lose
    Skin to dry and crack
    A clock to watch
    Tick tock tick tock.

    Back in the kitchen
    Swimming to the island
    Floating on my back
    Juggling Bell peppers in the air
    Cooking the best meal ever.
    But its not.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
