If You Were A Couplet, I’d Rhyme You

for samaraca

If you were a ladder
I'd climb you

Way up to the top
and I'd find you

If you were a doorway
I'd enter you

If you were unhinged
I'd center you

If you were a secret
I'd uncover you

Then seek out your treasure
rediscover you

If you were in front
I'd behind you

Pour out some espresso
and grind you

Let's say you're a Bossa
I'd hum you

Play you on guitar
and then strum you

If you weren't my wife
I'd wed you

Then pull out a quilt
and I'd bed you

But, since you're my woman
I'll just love you

And kiss that sweet halo
above you
