Everything Reminds Me Of You

for Jenny and Josi

I forgot to look out of the window
It was raining
And the puddles were black eyes on the ground
It reminded me of you
And I felt sad
I remembered that grass grows on wet fields
I was sitting on you
And you smiled as a harmonica played
I thought of you
As I saw your eyes
I was a piano on the train today
I was playing
All the melodies I knew because I was a bird
That knew I wanted to remember you
Everything reminds me of you
The plaited hair of children and the
Swing of a hat on its stand
Today when I ran and my muscles ached
I thought of you and the fibres in me ripped and grew

And I was reminded of you
