The studio apartment

Oh yes, I feel it
I’m d-d-dizzy, I’m a tremblin’
heartquake
my richter scale reads: magnitude ten
devastation
catastrophe
Knees knockin’
teeth like castanets
polka dotted lovin’
Gingham wiggle skirt riding
up, up
up
you blink and it’s vanished
You’re shedding your skin
You’re shedding my skin
You’re baring my soul
I’m baring yours
We’re home alone, baby
the whole world’s gone fishin’
It’s just you and I in this room
Close your eyes and it’s a vast expanse of horizon
almost a wasteland of possibility
future
We can build this world from the ground up
Close my eyes and it’s just you
open them—
you
