Story Book Eyes – Written Wednesday 9th August 2006 (Aged 31)

Story Book Eyes

who are you?
tell me, story book eyes
sweet goodnight
and family ties
who are you?
a plasticine flower
the mobsters last forever
a side alley dungeon
too light on your feet
who are you?
tell me, story book eyes
how did you fall
and graze those knees
were you climbing higher
in desolate backwater trees
were you in a mirror
trying to be me
who are you?
tell me, story book eyes
the empty jug
from the empty love
the oven poetess
who will never bake
who are you?
tell me, story book eyes
