Your name is etched on my brain
as if a tattooist popped open my skull
and took it upon himself to spell out
M-o-n-t-a-n-a on my sulcus.
I'll never forget her face.
Those blue hues acted as an ocean
that drowned out my heart
and extracted the worst she'd been
taught about me.
how could that be
when she didn't even know my name?
Her eyes paired well with
her pale, long blonde hair that
fell in small waves,
All of it suit her fair skin and small frame.
Anyone who knows me,
Knows that I'm not racist
and far from prejudice,
But I think that's a side of me
They all wanted to see.
I am the one who sets the atmosphere
With my natured kindness and gentle smile
Setting a pleasant and open mood
for my company more so than myself.
I was no longer the one to turn the dial
Setting the temperature from 52°
to a nice 72°.
And they kept it in the fifties,
just way their kind is said to like it. .
