An assortment of facts drawn from a hat
Certain things I hold on to
some of them will be forgotten
Silly things, pointless details
Why are these what I remember?
Mind works in a strange way
(There's a Californian swimming pool)
(There's an empty French cafe table)
to repackage as observations,
(There's your dad crying on the telephone)
rearrange them as conversations
(Never been able to piece it together).
