Hardly To A Sheba

Oh, my love
Let us meet in grocery stores
behind the avocados
    behind the pumpernickel
Let us meet in laundries
I shall wash my dirty underwear with yours
    purging TIDE
    cleansing ALL
Let us go to drive-ins
You will know my love
    by my popcorn
    by my Musketeers
I will float you in Coke
clothe you in naugahyde
Oh, my love
What song of songs did Solomon know
that, too, has not crept from me
like tarantulas off banana stalks
