small talk in a breezeway as Billie Holiday sings on the radio

December 21, 2013 § 2 Comments

I just thought
you’d like to know
the cows
never did come home

and the day’s just as long
as the day is long
I thought you’d like to know

now you know, that’s
a story I never tire of
when sleeping

I’m down two dogs
and the night calls for three
that’s something
you should
know

I’ll unwind the clock
if you unbutton
your corset
lace up your sneakers
while I pace the wall
call me tomorrow
I’ll answer you
Tuesday

in case you
want to know
