I choke across the room
seeing her pouring out to a stranger again.
and I can tell she is looking to be experienced.
I tell her about how rare she is.
‘you have so much to give you’re oozing.
i’ve stuck around and i know you.
you’re a mass of nights spent on the roof.
there’s a place uptown that plays your music
head on over there and your karaoke steals the show…
and your mornings are dedicated to your house hold
such a home maker.
afternoons surrounded by tall ball players.
and that’s okay,
the captain is your brother.
but see, that’s not why you are on the team Sherry.
11 grown up men keeping you around,
there’s not a single one of them
who can score you…’
i’m on the other end of each pick up line they throw at her
laughing at how sour she finds them all to be.
old fashioned is her type of love
she just wants her hand held
and her afro complimented
my love kid.
says she’ll hop into the back seat of anyone who’ll
drive her to an 80’s thing.
stuck in the 21st century
who’s gonna take her back to retrograde?
