lyrics

I Girl
Yes
You Girl
Soon you’ll be one
Of the old things
Medieval bridges
Cobbled stones
Sepia postcards
Dray horses
Descendants will glance
With mild interest
Amusement
Imagine they dressed like
That
Look at those boots
The red hat

She wore a lot of
Lipstick
She wrote plays
Now out of print
That’s where you get
Your creative bent
The great great granddaughter
Will say
To her well loved
Son or
Daughter
When they want to be an actor
There is no defense
To Becoming
The past tense
A mouldy old
Photograph
Falling out of a
Spider webbed
Bookcase
A Footnote
That will never capture
How she
Thought
Suffered
Lived
Worked
Loved
Or didn’t

That they wont remember
The perfume
The cigarettes
The coffee
That she read
Ten books at
A time
And often finished
Them
That she loved wine
For a long time
And silence
And listening
To the blues
And Mahler
And hated
Endings

That one afternoon
In a New York
Eatery
Alone
She felt eternal
That she had
Been here before

That ghost lovers
Wrestled her
On more than
Three occasions
Mundane
And spectacular
Dreams
