we don’t
meet too often and with caution
always our third

we know
we know all the consequences
in every word

and I know
it’s so below you, long ago you
let it slide

but I’m still
dressed to kill and eat my fill,
it’s still on my mind

you’re holding out your hands to say
there’s no hard feelings, there’s no hard feelings

you’re hoping you can point the way
and if there’s no hard feelings there’ll be no hard feelings

but as I start to pull away
I am delicately hanging by your


mata hari in a sari
whispering to tell her one more time

but only cause of where she keeps it
will you be the one to leak it out

you’ve promised me theres nothing there
but I know I feel it, I know I feel it

you’ve got me hanging in mid air
I know I feel it, I know I feel it

and if you want to turn my head
it’s delicately hanging by your thread
