i'd ask you to danceWhen rain tap-dances at September windowsi'd ask you to dance by surferxrosa
I want you in my silent house -
I'll tell the sofa and the love-seat to use three-inch voices
When they're gossiping about us,
And if they disobey we both will scald the cushions
With soup spilled out of yellow flowered bowls.
I want to sit with you and watch the clouds move
During long commercial breaks.
There's a diner in town that everyone goes to -
I want to take you there sometime.
We'll say "Two, please," and the waitress everyone knows
Will expose her wealth of drinking-straws and clinking costume jewelry
As she leads us to a table.
If we get two plastic menus colored in with scrambled eggs
We'll pretend to analyze the prices
And the selection of assorted muffins
As our hands sidle shyly to meet each other
Across the napkins and salt-shakers.
At the end of my cup of coffee is a layer of sugar
That I scrape at with my spoon –
I want to pay the bill even though you've already offered.
In the backseat of the car I drive is a book of burned
