How Like You This?

by Clive James and Pete Atkin

I might have guessed your kiss would change my eyes
As the wind must change the colour of the grass
I suppose that heavy shadow dies in time
But as for now, how like you this?

My fondness for you shines to all the world
Attention-getting like a silly hat
I expect I'll be myself again one day
But as for now, how like you that?

For I am yours to do with what you will
To kill with kindness if you like me well
And disappointment should you find me lacking
How now my love, is all this to your liking?

I suppose it makes me ill at ease to think
How flat the world and dark the day will be
Should you take how tight I'm holding you amiss
But as for now, how like you that?
How like you this?
