I know you know

I know you know what I’m thinking

I don’t need to tell you that

Or that

And those things will be obvious

And then

I wonder if you did know what I was thinking

Because I think you did not

This is coffee not tea

It’s Wednesday and you didn’t do what I thought you would on Tuesday

I wanted to live by the sea and we seem to be cradled halfway up the highest mountain I’ve ever seen

I know you said blue but I thought I would give you yellow

Never mentioned a thing

I wonder if you do know what I was thinking

I will not ask if you knew

Maybe I should not think

Pylon to you


Looking at that power line

There’s more than one

Great thick cables reduced to a thread

From where I stand I could be in bed

Sky high those cables pylon to pylon

Big insulators glistening in the sun

Power to the people

Power to you and me

Power across the hills, valleys and the trees

Down the alley, to my house

That other day when the power went out

I was walking along in the darkness,

Collided with a woman, she thought I was a lager lout

Just because the power went out

Left us in the darkness

Made her shout
