He really liked her blind. He'd sneak up from behind
and run his finger down her spine - say `it's fine'

He'd keep her dark brown eyes in brine and she'd be happy -
swimming under water. Safe! Looking for some seaweed she could
bake and make a meal for two. A Tokyo stew. And though he knew
she'd never do it - he never told her. He'd never ever tell her....
