isn't this what you were looking for?

put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty

I heard Springsteen
recorded Nebraska in a weekend
in his kitchen
on a 4 track tape recorder.

I heard if you come over tonight
we could string christmas tree lights
from tree to tree all down the block
and watch them.
If I understood morse code
then we could listen to them
blink out all the promises of the things we’ve yet to lose.


I want to tell you this
in a text message
and hope you get the reference.

My apologies, I haven't been able to check your site like I wanted to. You know, moving across the country and all... but I wanted to tell you that I really like this poem and the one before it. I have to page down to read all the things I've missed, but just wanted to let you know I'm reading again! :)
