    I Cannot Answer You Tonight in Small Portions

    I cannot answer you tonight in small portions. Torn apart by stormy love’s gate, I float like a phantom facedown in a well where the cold dark water reflects vague half-built stars and trades all our affection, touching, sleeping together for tribunal distance standing like a drowned train just beyond a pile of Eskimo skeletons.

  • I don’t know what it is,
    but I distrust myself
    when I start to like a girl
    a lot.

    It makes me nervous.
    I don’t say the right things
    or perhaps I start
    to examine,
    what I am saying.

    If I say, “Do you think it’s going to rain?”
    and she says, “I don’t know,”
    I start thinking : Does she really like me?

    In other words
    I get a little creepy.

    A friend of mine once said,
    “It’s twenty times better to be friends
    with someone
    than it is to be in love with them.”

    I think he’s right and besides,
    it’s raining somewhere, programming flowers
    and keeping snails happy.
    That’s all taken care of.


    if a girl likes me a lot
    and starts getting real nervous
    and suddenly begins asking me funny questions
    and looks sad if I give the wrong answers
    and she says things like,
    “Do you think it’s going to rain?”
    and I say, “It beats me,”
    and she says, “Oh,”
    and looks a little sad
    at the clear blue California sky,
    I think : Thank God, it’s you, baby, this time
    instead of me.
