Home Run in the Coffee Bar
bay
bank
big baby boy
brave bloated bumble bees
bad bass & backbeat
these things begin with the letter "B"

you sit there drinking cappuccino
ok
it's ok
I'll watch
I'm drinking cappuccino
we're both drinking cappuccino
but we're not the same
I think about this
maybe you're thinking about this
maybe you're wondering
what my hands are thinking
maybe you're wondering what
your hands are thinking
maybe not
there are only two or three tables between us
how far is that?
 
they're putting sofas on the F trains
who are "they"?
what are they talking about?
what did they mean by that?
who, me?
ok, they're not putting sofas on the F trains

the cappuccino foam on your upper lip
is making me swoon
hey, no need to apologize
I like it
we are not the same
this is exciting
‍your flesh begins in a
whole other dimension from mine
it ends in a whole other dimension
different colors
different molecules
long stringy things inside
wet
red, blue, and green
purple
it's the outside part I want to lick
are those the actual words
that came up in my mind?
you betcha
I'm a passionate guy
your cappuccino is nothing more than
liquid evidence of my will
I will dissolve the tables between us
with my laser of desire
here i come
my moonwalk will melt you

excuse me
I have just been delivered a message
first class express
from above and below
I am compelled
to respond and comply
you and I are here
solely to perpetuate
the rhythm of the universe
by humbly serving
the higher cosmos
who the hell are we to disregard
the mating hum hurled from
the penthouse of consciousness –
the red dot center of space and time
let us throw off the chains
of the material world
and fine tune
the harmony of the spheres
awesome, my roof or yours?
