How He Entered

Tindersticks in Lisbon … What a fabulous evening we had

This was how he entered
How he came in
With chips in his pocket
Just waiting for the chance to get into the game
With his hair combed and the checks on his shirt just right
He sang of it but knew nothing of it
The house of cards by an open window
Bag of fragments
An unsolvable puzzle
He knew nothing of what you needed from him
He knew nothing of giving
He only knew of his desires
He only knew of that moment
