I want to be well.
I’d take fine if need be.
You’ll give whatever it takes
To avoid saying what we already know.
One before the other, follow me down.
The constellations on your face
Lead the way, spelling trouble.
The face that launched 1000 ships,
The love that sunk every last one.
I wish we’d talk — deeply and darkly.
You’ll pour me another drink
Intent on finding the version of me
Who will give you what you need
For this week in time.
Sea breeze looks good on you.
Who needs a soul with eyes like yours?
One more round, bartender.
This wasn’t your fault,
Certainly wasn’t mine.
You’d like to appear fine,
I want to be well.
