I dreamt of you last Tuesday Polished loafers, leather suitcase Wheeling down a cracked sidewalk Cleanly shaven with a silk tie on Fiddling with your boutonniere Blue eyes sparkling in the mornin’s glare Sprigs of oak leaf turned orange Curling softly round your chin And you’ve been To the bottom of a wishing well Atop a million copper pennies Well acquainted with my dreams Having been the object of so many I dreamt of you in Venice Laughing and silhouetted Purple with perfectly freckled Cheeks aglow and hair disheveled Please tell me / did you find it Fun to be / a dandelion’s Wish for the evening last night Please tell me are you blind e- Nough to see burnin’ like a Birthday candle tonight

I heard she was seldom seen as pretty So wrapped up in shadows that, she was rarely seen at all Frankly the rumours don’t convince me But a moment, someone could survive such a fall I heard that he was seldom given regard As anything more than what he already was Just a flirt, stifled by a sweetheart A wandering soul, within the bonds of trust And I heard A stammered “Easy does it” And the creak of a musket In the dark And I heard An elephant exit The room as he left with- Out his heart
