They Didn't Throw Us Out of the Restaurant
or that I live in a tree so you don't have to
see the bread and the peanuts
that monkey will hold a coin for
you as the rain falls if you don't
feel like carrying a sack a man
is there with a helping hand
an organ to grind an old Italian
tune in the radio shaking hands
amber weather too and vanilla
and other ideas about stuff that can
relate nothing to your day-to-day
life so it's all in a little compartment
with the driving gloves and the lace.
I'm glad I met you just so I could tell this.
