Domo Arigato

Just because Elvis dropped the second verse

And I drank my mistakes

It doesn’t necessarily stand to reason

That we aren’t Japanese butterflies.


So, goodbye pork-pie hat.

Now that someone has punched my ticket

For the back of the bus

I get it:


Your blues are sinewy as your soul.

The heart is the biggest muscle in the human body

And even if it isn’t

Love only dies when we kill it.


The muse does this trick with her tongue

In the ear that drops my jaw

Like a Wurlitzer falling from a third story roof.

Domo arigato.
