Meet Me in Spring
It’s cold outside, Baby says, the voice on the phone.
The secluded road, where I let you come into me
is now glazed with ice and snow.
The trees are bare, Baby,
and the sky doesn’t look the same.
The wind blows crisply and sharply
from over the mountains,
and there’s no smell of jasmine.
"No, I’m not."
"Yes, I want you to."
I miss that paradise.
"Oh, what I would do to you."
"Yeah, we should have."
Next time we’ll strip ourselves bare,
we’ll roll down the bank,
and into the forest,
then do it all over again.
Tee hee hee, I squeal,
"No, this time I lead,
and you’ve got to lie still."
Let me lick and suck
til we both become road kill.
"Oh, Baby, you should be here."
