She's good at music composed on the spot,
at saying it back if you sleep while you talk.
She wants you to think if she says it she lies,
so how will she choose from the lie-buying guys?

One has to stand out, to offer up gluten,
to proffer flat spaces for her shoop-de-shoopin.
To nod with one's head without rolling one's eyes,
to be kind of kind, or foolishly wise.

It might break all deals if one can't move the garbage,
so owning a dumpster might well be ideal.
But itís oh so much labor: I'm willing to tickle!
But patrons and Proust ,
cave-dwelling, centaurs,
deep thinking thinkers,
and the odd kitchen sink?
If I had a dime, I'd wish for a nickel,
It all rushes by one, one better not blink.
