Wave hello to Mrs. Neighbour.
Bad with names, good with people.
She says she's busy painting walls.
Cover chairs with something light.
Removing clothes. What's a wedding?
Husband back from business thing.
"I'm lost," he says and does the look.
Says 'what's your name?' to the bird,
"There are patches on the ceiling."

All they need are a rake and a hoe
I'll dig a hole for the dog to play in,
Inch by inch and row by row,
And someday soon I'll say to them
Waiting waiting weeks and then
Oh hello there, you're that thing,
Or Just a brow without the S.
Sitting down she says to me
Evening now, a fading sun.

Planning things, stress and worry.
Happy calm today and then
Down to thinking,
What if we used a dog instead?
Wedding over, worry fading.
"I can't help thinking something's missing.

Jade and I
Me and Jade, we got it made,
There's a dog
And here am I (a wave to her),
But now she has to go away,

Stay in the shade when the sky is still blue.
All of the plans I had in my head,
The plans involve Jane and wondering how
Wake up after nine.
Three hours talking to a goat about a fox.
Look at the hand; damn I forgot.
Write it on the hand.
