tea towel blues

yeah, i got the tea towel blues
wondering who needs such things
so badly
and charming little
doggy and sailor
laundry bags
to give
to their wonderful
child who's going away
to college
never to return
to mama's lap again
only to discover
drugs and alcohol
and sexually transmitted

but let's be nice
and make our little play
worlds cuter
and more reassuring
by feathering our little
with all manner of things
no bird would have

let's listen to the buena vista
social club sing lushly
romantic bluesy
cigarette smokey roomy
cuban songs
with voices
polished by

and let's be happy
for the small things
while they last
while we're here
and there
and still able
to feel...
