then singing again
I’m sure it was that
but not the same song as before
this time sadder

I couldn’t open the door

every time she laughed her teeth showed

trying to
trying to explain

that song
that different song

fuller, more colourful
than before
as I said

trying to explain
that song

and the door
and her teeth

not explain
not the right word
nothing to explain, after all
in the way of meaning
if that’s what you’re after

just a song
a door
her teeth when she laughed

as far as I remember

just a few things
