When a boy tells you he loves you you Will hear music the voice of your past Lovers dancing up your throat your Stomach and after hours Cabaret still Waiting on the last call that was when You learned that when a boy says I love You he means I am getting ready to be Inconsistent with you now This boy will tell you that he loves you Not long after he had you waiting for Two hours in front of a cocktail lounge Patience is something you were working On but no not for him when he asked you To tell him that you love him back you Will be in the car in the parking lot of A late night Diner you will watch the Words fall into your lap like a spilled Glass of white wine you remember the day Your Courier pigeon heart got lost in The wind because that was a message I Did not know how or where to carry and One by one the boys have fallen as Silently as the birds do
