They say that two's company
And that three is a crowd.
I say that's bullshit,
because the truth is that I felt far more compainionship
in a room of three
than I've been feeling in a room alone with you.
You see, I've been thinking about tigers lately
maybe that's a nonsequiter.
Tiger's stripes, actually.
That's what i've been thinking about.
You know when you're looking at a tiger
your eyes notice it's stripes before anything else.
Scientests say that's natural defense.
I use my coat, an extra shirt, and if I'm feeling real lonely
a pair of sunglasses.
They keep me safe from bullets, knives and harsh words.
You see I've been thinking about Alaska, lately.
whoops, there was another nonsequiter.
The tilt of the earth actually.
How if you get high enough north,
then you get thirty days of night,
and thirty nights of day,
on different ends of the calendar.
I wonder if I've taken some metaphysical trip to alaska,
I've been thinking about waltz lately.
Now I know this one makes sense.
I want to hear a 3/4 time piano more often.
I want to move in a triangle.
step-one-two step-one-two step-one-two step-one-two.
now I'm getting all emotional.
Dancing does that to me.
So I've been thinking about a crowd lately.
and I've been thinking about...
why I wanted someone around in the first place.
you see, I can't even pin down exactly what it is I'm thinking.
Much less what I want.
This crazy writer's ADD is worse than a writer's block.
and so I guess I'm thinking...
Maybe it's not time to point a poem in anyone's direction
