Please keep chasing me
Your Southern constellations got me so dizzy
It’s cold but you pretend that you are warm with me
Before I get you home you’re nearly frozen
But I’ll never let you freeze without me
I’m a taciturn molecule
Who offers my articulacy in slight
Yet I’d wish to assure
My thanks for the delightful night.
Step in, step out, left leg and right
Pick up the pace, don’t lose sights
Footsteps faster, you’ll make it son
And if it all fails, break hell and run.
Listen to their laughs and aspirations
Watching exaggerated gesticulations
Why are you there? The answer is nil
A chariot won’t run with no third wheel.
You can lead me to a bucket of words
But you cannot make me drink
The same way I can lead you to a brain
But even I can’t make you think.
Amy and Ken, sipping their sodas
May’s ice cream is melting in fast
Sue’s popping dimples in hysteria
Ten sat thinking how long it’ll last.
