7. Stick to the Eyes Next Time

(Lyrics, photo by Joey Kulkin)

Stick to the Eyes Next Time

A nose is a nose is a nose, is a rose

And so I spoke of her nose.

But then she got mad
at my words that were bad?

Emotions that followed were rancid and sad.

Really, all I meant is that her nose was my rose.

Clearly I chose the wrong verbal prose.

'Cuz her nose was my rose,
yet was I scorned like a thorn
no longer adorned
like love
when it's borne.

Her nose was my rose.

Love wilts,
I suppose.
