    I’d like a house
    with an underground
    swimming pool.

    It’d be blue, calm
    a place where I could go
    and swim.

    I’d like to get to the end
    of a day and have enough energy
    to have a bath.

    It’d be very deep,
    very hot. There’d be
    a glass of champagne: Dom Perignon,

    candles, their lemon scent
    and Sigur Ros playing
    in the background.

    I wouldn’t be able
    to hear the chaos
    going on outside the door.

    There’s be no bath toys.
    No bath toys. In my head
    I’d be on the beach

    in Australia. There’s a cool
    breeze, there’s palm trees
    and the sun’s on the water.

    There’s white sand
    and nobody else
    on the beach.
