Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight
You’re drawn. Like butter on lobster. A kind of attraction and love that tastes sweet. Decadent and worth the cost. Indulgent, sexed, satisfied. Everything on a list. If you kept a list. But lists are for business people. People with an agenda and a strategy. Your stuff’s real and without a board of directors and casual Fridays. Your feelings just fit. It’s a kind of love that could pay the rent if you monetized it. Venture capitalists would invest in it. It’s that crazy kind of love we all deserve. The kind of love that’s probably right in front of you.
[Walter Egan, "Magnet and Steel" Not Shy, 1978]
Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight
Turn up your recall. Re-evaluate, educate yourself. Why’d it end? Why’d it begin? How’d it begin? There was something there. And then there wasn’t. And then there was. Or was there? Do you care? Do share. And if you find you do care, by all means share. Dare.
[Ane Brun, "Do You Remember" It All Starts with One, 2012]
