Overheard at Table 4: Aphrodite and Little Tom


Aphrodite is taking amphetamines

Now this angel is falling apart at the seams.

Trying to ease the weight of a Hunter's Moon

Pray that daylight don't ever come too soon.

She says you gotta demonize your sophistry.

I don't really know what that means for me.

Aphrodite waves her mood ring in the air

Trying to make a single into a pair.

And Little Tom is yellowing outside in the yard.

He says he'll never again let down his guard.

Not since that one time that he gave away his heart

Down by the railroad to that salty yellow tart.

Aphrodite now she is waving goodbye

With one slim middle finger from the back of a motorbike.

Little Tom is still pining for that salty yellow tart

To coming riding one day back into his heart.

Back into his mean green heart.
