All I said was coincidence
regarding a book, blue eyes
that already are trouble
plus he writes dark poems
according to an English teacher
who phoned home, concerned.
He said we are who we are
stuff happens-life is strange
that much I do know.
I said he is also a hockey player;
he said sensitive And a hockey-player,
now that is dangerous
I said it's the blue eyes and he replied
hockeyfans with blue eyes who write poetry
oh no (says the pot, in the direction
of the kettle) bad news.
He said some traits we could blame
on Baltimore or Blue Crabs,
I said no need to blame, you made me laugh
to myself, and he said should have
used the word Attribute
I was still laughing because of blue eyes,
dark poems, and the sensitive hockeyfan
but also the image of oh no
a talking pot warning me while
glancing at a kettle, of bad news.
