he’s a little eros

animated-cupid-image-0036poor little cupid
sittin’ on a cloud
doesn’t have
a girlfriend
isn’t he allowed?
i’m a lonely angel
he’s a little eros
we could be an item
we could be
each other’s heroes
dear when you flew by me
whistling romanticallyanimated-angel-image-0010
you seemed so
debonair and sharp
your hair a windy mess
you almost all undressed
zing! went the strings of my harp! *

* shout out to my girl judy, doing the james f. hanley original verse here

repeating in a loop

a melody is haunting me
it follows where i go
it’s amplified
when i’m inside
with lyrics i don’t know
so ba da dee
da doobie doo
it came from some commercial
singing sea-gull-648774_960_720da skeet marie
do doobie dee
insipid and inertial
la bee li bo
i didn’t know
it was so resolute
with scoopy doo
and tigger too
repeating in a loop
we found a cure
for clinging tunes
it takes concerted effort
we drown them out
with something else
intrinsically no better
it helps to know the lyrics
and the melody by heart
two princes by the spin doctors
is where we always start
