Dr. Midnight

Dr. Midnight, I know,

I know that you're the one--

Because when you look at me

Your lenses seem

To reflect and become a bright double sun.

Shine on me,

Dr. Midnight


Those other girls

Those calculating cats will grow snappish and fat--

You don't need them,

They don't know you,

Come, let me show you my repeatable data

One at a time

Dr. Midnight


See, darling?

In your office, I will place angels in every drawer--

Your waiting room will fill with more feebs

Than you could possibly see in a lifetime

Infirm and on time,

Dr. Midnight


Those other girls

Those gold-digging bitches just want your prescriptions--

But what do they know?

Tell them to go

And leave us to our bliss and insurable procedures

Punking the reaper,

Dr. Midnight

A witch and a mad scientist sound like one of those marriages made in hell that might work...as long as hell is a place you like.

(at least the narrator seems witchlike in her patient-charming and er, anti-social tendencies.)

And where do you find these photos--egads--explaining the heart nailed to a board with groupies taking notes...perfect image for this.

I'm liking the layers in this one a lot.

"Infirm and on time"

Don't know what this makes me ... my friends call me a (good) witch AND I was married to a (good) doctor for 22 years!!!

Great poem.

This totally rocks! Love it! Oh, and btw, the 'love it' bit was sang (sung?) in my head Opera style as I typed it. Hehe

Oooo, repeatable data, sounds about as delicious as ones and zeroes can get.

Angels in every drawer, how utterly dancingly awesome!! And angels in the closets too? :)

I love it. There is something catty about it and beautiful at the same time.
