Second Row, Never in My Life, Second Row

"So don't you get your hopes up if I call
Because I always catch myself when I fall
But I got to admit
That I'm a little bit in love with you"

I'm a little bit in love with you too, Steve E.

Nelsonville, Ohio, Stuart's Opera House, some dark lovely in tow and the highway, the sparkiness, I wore my heart around my neck--coral and gnarled--and just for you.
I'm all swoony and feel like the fortune cookie semi-truck hit a bump and dropped all the folded-golden-sweetness in my front yard. Only one thing would have made the sweetness complete.

Why I Love Joanna Newsom and L-Bo for Introducing Me to Her

I wanted to say: why the long face?
Sparrow, perch and play songs of long face
Burro, buck and bray songs of long face!
Sing: I will swallow your sadness and eat your cold clay
Just to lift your long face

And though it may be madness, I will take to the grave
Your precious longface
And though our bones they may break, and our souls separate
- why the long face?
And though our bodies recoil from the grip of the soil
- why the long face?

The City in Which I Love You

In the city, in the city, in the city there's a thousand things I want to say to you
P. Weller

The word city seems exciting to me just now. Maybe it's the NY-jones coming on again and the fact that the move and the dissertation must be done so that I can get there before summer's end.

I dunno what to tell you, Marge! I don't think about things. I mean, I respect people who do, but... I just try to make the day not hurt until I get to crawl in next to you again
