Swans snort like pigs
For yesterday's bread
And ducks rise like tanks from the water

In perfection
On cars
Destroyed by my hand

Raisins between my teeth
Where are you?
The click clack of lazy days
The world turns
Nobody knows

The cold is in white lines on the window
Inside and out

Whispers so gentle
They're lost for a moment
They only make sense
Later on

Posh socks and a couple of firelighters

The sparks go up in a fountain
I can see you through the shower

Your hair glows red
When light meets dark

A huge white totem sticks straight up
The duck rights itself and quacks
A bare bulb
In a white room
Translucent curtains
A sun coming

I put my arms around you. The wind is strong, orange leaves.
I put my arms around you.
The winter comes, and there is ice.
I put my arms around you.
The darkness comes and a stranger comes.
I put my arm around you.
Two children, double pushchair.
I put your hand in mine.
I press my fingers between yours.

The ghosts wipe their eyes
They can't believe what they're seeing

Underneath the casing
Inside the box
Spiders scramble to get out of the way
My past
It is time for it to emerge
