if i had blonde hair it would be spilling over the upturned collar of my peacoat...

if i had blonde hair it would be spilling over the upturned collar
of my peacoat as i lean alluringly back on the front fender
of your car the mist and the fog and the twilight hues
would be swirling around me and then you
would step out of the shadows closing your cigarette lighter
with a snap and you would call to me your angel in blue
yes that’s how it would be if only my hair were blonde
and your intentions were true

every girl needs a little Bogie for her Bacall to rub up against at least once in her lifetime…

…and even after all this time
it can still make me feel
white bread and average
the cloyingly mushy middle
of a brilliant girl sandwich
