Offer of Coffee

what if i said
horseshoes and cool clover
hairy spider legs and muddy feet
a day called summer
a night with the cat's secret name
she breathes it in your ear
but you can't hear
such a soft sigh
such a fast beating heart
so it starts

what if i said
hay barns and bay mares
empire builders and ant farms
a town called yesteryear
a city with more faces than doors
she touches your hand
but she's with the band
such soft hair
such a shame she isn't there
when the lights go down

what if i said
piano keys and twisted trees
crumbling cliffs and a stiff breeze
a room called waiting
a bed with more ghosts than pillows
she looks into your eyes
but only until the taxi arrives
such a soft voice
such a kind way to say
good bye

what if i said
no thanks instead
