it was two sweet love whispers
and my freaking clairvoyant beaut told me
“stop listening to Pharrel Williams’ Happines song,”
“but but but,” I stammered,
“Williams played in The Neptunes
and Neptune was almost called Janus and that’s the god of
beginnings, transitions, doors opening and what not.”
she rolled her eyes.
so i tap danced and started singing Pharrel,
“clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.”
she rolled her eyes again,
but opened her hand.
