you deserve

i'm here to tell you

you are the sweetness

of a sugar angel

you deserve all the poetry

you deserve just deserts

with reddi whip exploding

on your lips

you rate stars and hearts

like ever day was feb. 14

i might not deserve you

but you are lucky to have me

the one who knows

you are the wonder

that deserves this poem

and i am hear to tell you

with one randy thought

tripping over another

and one dance of the thesaurus

through the wisdom of

make believe in erin*land

i am here to put my hand

in yours, my other on the small

of your back and lead you through

the intermingling of words

that fall down to the paisleys

between your toes
