Oh hi there!
Yes I'm fine
can you hold on just a sec
while I prepare myself
I think I’m ready for you
to read this
Lemmie get my words in order
Have you seen my heart anywhere?
What happened to the hope
I put on this shelf
It was here just a minute ago
I don’t suppose you came across
inspiration or passion on your way in
Okay sorry things are a mess over here
can I just straighten up a bit?
Now I think I am ready for you
You know I’m not a real poet, don’t you?
I hope you weren’t expecting
emotional revelations or
deep understandings or
spiritual awakenings like
what did Mrs. Halfpenny call it?
Forgive me this place is a wreck
There’s not much more to me though
than this is what you see
I’m not sure what you were expecting
and oh I think I hear the baby
Well this has been pleasant
May I get your hat and coat?
We’ll do this again I’m sure.
Okay they’re gone.
