Old fashioned

Your light eyes, voice so smooth
I’m a green-eyed beauty queen
Legs hit the pavement
Expression bitter & mean

On parchment with parsley
Yellow concrete & thyme
Mysteries of our memories
Apple crisp & moonshine

Witty but only on pages
No intention to rhyme
Going backwards in high speed
I do that all of the time

Take me out of this nest
Take me out of this nest
Where the whiskey is neat
Where the words don’t repeat
