Radha's Blues

Last night she dreamt
she was in the arms of her husband,
He was saying,
Yes isn't it just
like it used to be and
the phone rang
it was her lover, calling in from Singapore.

"I can't stand it here without you," and
she tried to put it together with
her husband walking calmly
through the house, his knowledge of her
how is she to know what love is
an endless string of faces each
more than before and less than after,

He is her husband walking calmly through the house
he knows those voices and
how they say they love her
he knows their fears and
how she thinks she needs them
but always
they will run away or she
And hope that love is waiting somewhere
in the calmness of the house.
