Friends and Lovers and the Senses

Show me things that bounce
Or things that flash in light
I’m really just a simple man
But not just over sight.

Read me slow a story
Whisper in my ear
I’m really just a simple man
I hope I’ve made that clear.

Wash your hair with coconut
Spray on your perfume
I’m really just a simple man
No matter what the room.

Fry me up some bacon
And brew the coffee strong
I’m really just a simple man
I hope it won’t be long.

Rub my shoulders and my neck
And you can have my wallet too
I’m really just a simple man
It’s really not that hard to do.

A Fragment of Love

The dearest of the dear

We hold so close inside

And on the out we embrace

Standing tall while they hide.

 

The closest of the close

We look for everywhere

And see in all the things around us

In lips and skin and hair.

 

The brightest of the bright

Shine like holy stars

And we are awed by things within

We watch off from afar.
