LULLABY FOR IDLE LOVERS

She’s a thing of beauty
And a joy for now,
Bold of décolletage
But vague of why and how.

He’s a piece of work
He’s a work of art.
Shrugged out of pretty nothings
That come straight from the heart.

Quiet now, the idle lovers are sleeping
It’s all they know and all they need to know.
And later when they wake with sleepy kisses
They won’t remember where the hours go.

He’s got nothing to say:
He wants to write a constitution.
Commit it to amnesia,
Commit it to an institution.

Quiet now, the idle lovers are sleeping
It’s all they know and all they need to know.
And later when they wake with sleepy kisses
They won’t remember where the hours go.

She believes in nothing
But her right to be believed in.
So on this empty vessel
They’ll set sail for the four winds.

Quiet now, the idle lovers are sleeping
It’s all they know and all they need to know.
And later when they wake with sleepy kisses
They won’t remember where the hours go.
