Venice Beach Love Song


She kissed him gently,
lovingly, softly...this was more of a
sweet, extended, tender peck.

The 'nerd' strutting down
the Venice Beach boardwalk
could not possibly be any happier.

He seemed almost ready to go
full Cruise on Oprah to tell us, you, me, everyone
how much in love he is.

He can now be crucified in Dog Town and
it does not matter: the skinny nerd has lived and loved.
Venice Queen smiles, ghosts whirl in the sandy wind.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
