pure manure

your lips move in a rhythm
your lips they never stop
you spout words like a fountain
you spout words in your sleep

I try to look excited
I try to stay alert
I try to keep my eyelids up
I try not to look inert

you suck the air in loudly
you suck the air in wide
you suck the air from round the room
it’s making me feel tired

it’s all about your stories
it’s all about your songs
it’s all about you, never stops
it just goes on and on

I try to go on loving
I try to stay afloat
I try to keep on swimming
and get back in the boat

but you don’t miss a beat though
you prattle on and on
you hit me with machine gun fire
through lips it thunders from

what is it that you said now?
you said it loud and sure
I must have nodded off to sleep
and missed your pure manure

and then some…
