i love your hair (& think i would like to wash it)

standing next to you on the production line
sometimes makes me dizzy and distracted
and i carry thoughts of you home every night
that i try to leave the Clown Factory behind
and i don’t want to make you uncomfortable
but i love your hair (& think i would like to wash it)

i was going to make this a sestina
but that’s too grand a gesture
(better an eloquent whisper)
and there’s that other form you like
with the repeating line
i love your hair (& think i would like to wash it)

you make me write poems everyday
you make me soup you make me laugh
you make me read eat love pray
and i know this is inappropriate
and it’s smarter to keep it secret
but i love your hair (& think i want to wash it)
