I Wrote A Good Omelet


I wrote a good omelet...and ate 
a hot poem... after loving you


Buttoned my car...and drove my 
coat home...in the rain... 
after loving you


I goed on red...and stopped on 
green...floating somewhere in between... 
being here and being there... 
after loving you


I rolled my bed...turned down 
my hair...slightly 
confused but...I don't care...


Laid out my teeth...and gargled my 
gown...then I stood 
...and laid me down...


To sleep... 
after loving you
