Like a book never read


Like a book never read
I smell stale damp like fag ash
But my spine isn’t thread-
Bare, I’ve got plenty of time.

To find my fairy-tale, flare…
I’ve gone from flared jeans
To strait leg, to bootleg,
To drain pipes.
And all the way back again.
Fashion changes but never I.

Like a book never read
I smell stale pretty damp like fag ash
But my spine isn’t thread-
Bare, I’ve got one or two more chapters.

For you to find my cap and feather
No matter the weather
I just a simple lucky fella…
Now, you’ve booked marked me for the night.

Oh, yes now you’ve found my fairy-tale, flare…
I’m just simply a lucky fella…
With a feather in my cap without a care
For mine thread bare broken spine
Cause with you I’ve I’ve got plenty of time.

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
