I wake up from a dead end dream—
trying to remember the last name
of someone I never knew,
trying to recall a recipe
for something I never baked.
April 15 -
Vance has an amazing relationship
with his voice, “Are we going to do this?”
he asks Ellis. Then out it comes, with
the force of all heaven and earth--
he sang our wedding song to us,
right there in the club at our table.
“Oz never did give nothin’ to The Tin Man,
that he didn’t, didn’t already have.”
It's after Lilac Festival, May 20
and still I reach for my gloves
to go for a walk.
It’s late May here.
I’m gonna love you ‘till nobody else
loves you come feign or come sigh.
Happy together in indecent weather
Oh, won’t you be mine?
