Back

I got my baby back

and now he is sweeter and softer,

hard like a lion,

velvet like cake.

His juiciness can climb the tallest building,

leap the widest sea,

covers the planet in sun splach,

paints the night sky with silvery droplets of moon.

Now he’s bubbling through my veins

and you know what that means—

Pop!  goes a volcano in Hawaii.

Cause my baby is back,

and I am going to suck his angel breath

all the way down to my chattering saloon doors.
