Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, Friday Music Challenge: Kettering by the Antlers.
I say, “I stay ‘cuz still some love for you.”
You say, “I stay only to take care of you.”
I say, “Why stay. Can’t repay all the years
I took care of you.”
You say, “Why stay. I don’t care if you do.”
I say, “Have to stay. No where but you.”
You say, “Okay. Stay. Must take care of you
‘cuz it’s something you just can’t do.”
I say, “Okay. But I still feel love for you.”
And, then you say:
“Okay, but I don’t care if you do.”
The lyrics of Kettering are a visceral punch in my gut. Poem is uneven; first response to “the left jab outta now where feel” that leaves me staggering. Still have to hear the music.
