You Loved


I was in the fun of the day
I mean
The sun of the day
And you said you loved the son
But then I found you
You meant the sun

I misunderstood our play
Our drama
My drama
Baby mama drama

Singularly single
Though we intertwined our legs
Crab legs cracked open to reveal
Tender flesh protected deeply
I thought you loved me
But you only loved my flesh

I misunderstood our love
Turtle dove
Dove under the water
Minister’s daughter
Covered; undiscovered

Celebrated Fathers’ Day
Most unusually usual way
With no daddy, no wedding ring
Platters on the table loaded
As Platters sang a melody

I really f-ed up
F-ed you
You had fun
I had you
