CommentaryWhat a privilege to have experienced such a joyful relationship.
Webcam woman with her feet in the airwatched by a man with his distant
dancing Indonesian statuettes.Nearing a wide bridge the barefoot bride.A shout -
her name - from the other side.No frills. No fanfare. No regrets.
You want me to throw
you into freezing Lake Tahoe?I been waiting long timefor you, you know.Circus Circus
lost one of its best workers.Wedding rings four, where they went I’m not quite sure.Look
what shiatsu can do to you!
Honeymoon in L.A.A cheap motel Santa Monica way.Sorted your visa and flight,we stayed
only one nightthen flew off to the U.K.
Happy happy happy happy happy day.We put out the rubbish. Happy happy day.Happy
happy happy happy happy day.Photographs and mirrors. Bloody karaoke.
I bought you a gift to keep for years to comethen one month later you gave it to
my mum.I guess she hated it too.We saw it in the zoo
and we laughed all of the time.
Into our flat after work I creptstill and silent until you leaptout beaming from
another different hiding place.
Blow the candles out. They just relight.Climbing ropes in Wales at treetop height.Nojit
in the snow or gardening with a smiling face.
Grins and gurning.Eyes joy-filled alight.Short hugs by day.Long hugs at night.Camping
at Brighton and Brightlingsea.Icy Edinburgh, rainy Torquay.Snowdon slopes, campfire
baked beans for tea.
Two separate doors between kitchen & hall.
Walk round in circles for no reason at all,chasing and when we got caughtwe decided
we oughtto hide together from ourselves.
Jonita, what’s your name? Pizza poem.Does this karaoke have “Glass Bubble Home”?You
sang whatever your choice
at the top of your voiceand we laughed all of the time.
Your first football match - what’s the score?Leyton Orient 2, Hartlepool 4.Richie’s
twin. Will Victoria come to us?
Famous monument. Ancient unknowns.No let’s not go there. It’s just some stones.
I rescued you but did you not seeat least as much as that, you too rescued me?Pick
blackberries near to Nojit’s Road.A gate to bend over at Wendover.
Bright eyeshine, pick me out. Light me up.
Once upon a time there was a princess.Her name was Nojit. Do you love her?Oh yes!
Yes and T.B. made her thinbut the smell of penguin
meant we laughed all of the time.
She can’t speak English - not one word.Learn ornithology. Bird bird bird. BIRD!
A happy hat on your head.Fights for one side of the bed
and we laughed all of the time.Didn’t we? Didn’t we?
We laughed all the time.We laughed all the timeand if I had my time againI’d choose
a quarter to ten
and we’d laugh all of the time.
Wouldn’t we? Wouldn’t we?
We laughed all the time.Oh yes we argued but we would climb
back up and find a way through
and we’d smile anew
