Hard Time Poesy

30. Jan. 1996 By Alex Nuttall - Bio

Let us face this,
I do not love you,
I love her,
That romantic heroine
That you can not be,
I love that woman
Who smokes, drinks, writes, paints
And dances,
I love that fearless child
Inside that great sacred woman
Who is not afraid to die,
But she knows that she will.

The poet wants a woman who is more fun. He is stuck in a relationship that he is now observing is falling apart. He wants fun again.

No Time

No time.
She doesn't have time to write
Him so far away.
The telephone calls added up.
She balanced the check book.
Not much left after Christmas and credit card payments.
Direct deposit goes the money he earned.
United States Army Private Nobody.

What the heck,
He was just training for Bosnia.
"No time.." though.
She sends a card she bought a month or so
Ago for, obviously, someone else --
A cute Teddy-bear --
Just what he needed to help him pull through.

"No time to write, gotta' go."

He felt guilty.
She let him know that he had not written her
For the previous two weeks.
If she did something that made him upset and
Feel so alone,
It was always because he had done it first.
She was always sure to remind him of that.

Where does it end?
In this case, death, and a life insurance policy.
O he loved her so.

Plenty of time.

Gets Paid to Dream

...gets paid to dream

You have got man
In your heart
Crushing him so that
You think he cannot get out.

Oh little girl constricts
With her sublime fists
The ignorant, poor and wretched –
“Hail the Queen!
Now off with her head!” –
Cake is not good,
After all.

And man, guy-dude,
Buys a telescope
And he gets paid to dream –
“She is a woman, oh well.”
