Metallic green beetle cars
Make me smile

Handwritten songs
On aerogrammes
In ball point ink
Smudging just right

Teddy bears
And home made videos
Racing motorcycles
And camping trips
Love letters
And early 90’s music
Guitar playing
And crispy chicken wings
Walking on the beach
Hand in hand
Sinking in the sand
Dancing naked
To slow songs
Your fresh, soapy smell
Cotton shirts
And pants that don’t fit right
Opening night at the Lionel Wendt
Watches that glow in the dark
Breaking your head playing rugby
endless narrations of Star Wars
and bouquets of roses for a lark

All that and you
Metallic green beetle cars
Still makes me
