so much for the city.

April 18, 2009

What are you doing today?
Are your windows open, too?
Are you slicing sandwiches on the angle
while I listen to Jack Johnson
and paint my toenails?

What are you doing today?
Did you go to the zoo
to see the baby elephant
who still doesn’t have a name
while I listened to The Thrills
and plant yellow pansies
in blue pots?

What are you doing today?
(so much for the streetlights)
Running and bike riding?
(they’re never gonna guide you home)
While I was listening to The Best of Boston
and dancing with the dog?

So much for the City.
