Disparate Views on Love

got a cat on one shoulder — crow on the other

whispering all acaw — cat says one thing

crow says opposite —– cat says duck it

crow says pluck it ——- cat says burn it

crow says don’t you ever learn

you got to abide, you got to ride shotgun

in a ’60’s Chevy pickup with rusty fenders up the mountain

climb — you got to love him till the end of time

I wash my face in icy water

cat perched on one side – – crow on the other

I sob — he said he prized me — he was throb with promises

cat says chuck him —- crow says buck him into cordwood

cat says spurn him — crow says don’t

you ever fucking learn?
