‘You know,’ you said once, years ago, over a coffee, ‘you’re a bit like Wuthering Heights.’
Today, by the bandstand, windswept and frazzled by salt and sea, you are entirely new. The only thing that is the same is how good auburn looks on you. Something of a trendsetter, ever chasing the ebb and flow of something deep within you. Even now, I cannot see what stirs beneath your surface. Your stoicism is perfection amongst the mourners.
‘There’s always something going on with you.’
