not the way you might think, or want to hear about.

you see, I was doing the driving, and we stopped to pick him up, from a posh hotel, and in he got.

first thing he did was turn off the CD compilation I had spent every evening for weeks preparing.
‘can’t concentrate with that fucking music playing’, he said.

he’ll be back this weekend, playing; I wanted to buy a ticket and stand up, shout the same thing.

but he wouldn’t recognise me, most likely. I was just the driver, the one who organised his hotels.

and I was also the one who left the big city all those years ago, went home, only to come back a woman. as near as I’ll ever get, anyway.

he’s a bastard for not listening to my CD. he’s nothing to me.

ddim y ffordd yr ydych yn meddwl, na eisiau clywed amdano.

fi oedd yn neud y gyrru, a’i gasglu o westy crand, ddoth i mewn i’r car.

cyn gynted a roedd yn y car, trodd y CD i ffwrdd, yr un treuliais pob nos yn paratoi, am wythnosau.
‘can’t concentrate with that fucking music playing’ dywedodd.

bydd yn ‘ôl penwythnos yma, yn chwarau. roeddwn i am brynu tocyn a sefyll fyny a gweiddi yr un peth.

ond ni fyddai yn fy nghofio, siwr o fod. dim ond y gyrrwr oeddwn i, yr un odd yn trefnu’r gwestai.

a fi odd yr un gadawodd y ddinas fawr, dychwelyd adre, fel dynes. mor agos a fyddai fyth, beth bynnag.

maen fastad am beidio gwrando ar fy CD. mae o’n golygu dim i mi.
