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
