I think about you when I see a barefoot rider. Or hear Fields of Barley or Is this Love. Lime cordial doesn't taste the same. And an egg is just an egg now. Crying Little Birdy, dappled light and swaying curtains Or alto voices that are lower than mine but just as bright.
I think about you when I use a dishwasher stick That has the scourer with the detergent in it. When I sit over the crack in a couch. When it rains and it's cold. When I have cold feet. When I slip into cool sheets.
I think about you when Father Ted is on. Imagine you in Paul Kelly songs. When I smell cut wood, sanded back. Or salt air. Or see grey hair and weathered loved houses. Or women in vests with lilac blouses.
I think about you in the water, When I'm in the shower, or at the beach. When it rains and when I drink. In the blue and green and sometimes silver. Or when I'm smothered in an unrequited love That isn't yours.
