so he said to her here here

she's a vagabon via small town, america.
a little place, a place he couldn't pin point on a map or a globe.

she wore her clothes loose across her loose stance
in long legs and arms and fingers and curled up toes in long socks.

he fancied her, heard her voice on the radio,
her words penetrating his mood.

licking his lips he learned the words.
singing along poorly in the car on the way to some old friend's house.

and there she was, this singing vagabon.
and so he said here, here, little american girl, here.

danced her to the end of the night and tied her up
in his arms. her hair a beautiful, tangled mess.

gone the next day to a festival up north.
she left him bare among friends and sheets.

and a little love note with her number on it,
written in crayon on the tenner in his wallet.

it took him 6 hours to find it,
but the coffee tasted sweeter after 5 hours of greif and 1 of missery.

here, here, he called her up and made her promise to see him again.
here, here, she said to him, here we go.

unique bonds

although many others
have loved her before
a popular city

you make her yours
take part of her
and make her home

although she has lived
for the sake of so many
other men before you

you love her
and make her yours
like you would a city

take a particular path
that no one else has taken
and make it yours

bond with her in new
interesting patterns
so she will love you

your city, your woman
bond with others
that love her too

make her yours more
than theirs and love
this is a unique affair

although many other unique affairs
have happened here before you
love her and she will love you in return
