"she has Betty Davis eyes"

bySenna Jawa©

 
Note: the song mentioned in the title of the poem was the most popular rock song of 1981.




     had no wish
     to write poetry
     in english
     till 1981
     in 1981
     left own family behind
     went down
     from michigan
     to florida
     in a toy
     ota tercel
     a small orange car
     stereo
     on
     "Betty Davies eyes"
     and on
     rains poured
     onto
     dry florida soil

     four years later
     goodbye
     florida solid
     grass cutting
     church going
     citizens
     and
     florida
     bums
     florida
     cries
     toyota & i
     pass trucks in rain
     like we had a wish
     to die
     georgia alabama mississipi lousiana
     texas texas texas texas
     new mexico arizona nevada
     california
     roads of blue and red
     ocean and mountains
     full hair bright fur in skies
     all dry
     don't give a damn

     six years
     you're beautiful  true
     but fuck you california too

     goodbye toyota
     didn't treat you well
     am i crazy
     why am i talking to a car
     i'll junk my toyota tercel
     i feel like shit

     i am on my way again
     ole'!
     ... the world gets smaller  and   smaller    end
