Once Upon A Time


I don't mean to ruin your cute little
storybook romance you think you got goin' there

But not a lot of fairy tales
End with

'And they lived happily ever after
once she stopped constantly cheating on him
with her old lover
because he got her going
more than this new guy was able to
and she couldn't stay away until
he had enough of her crap'

What you got ain't romance

You settled you fool
and you're both gettin fat

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

of the slow autumn at my window,
