I Wrote a Good Omelet

I wrote a good omelet...and ate a hot poem... 
after loving you

Buttoned my car...and drove my coat home...in the 
    rain...
after loving you

I goed on red...and stopped on green...floating 
    somewhere in between...
being here and being there... 
after loving you

I rolled my bed...turned down my hair...slightly confused 
    but...I don't care...
Laid out my teeth...and gargled my gown...then I 
    stood...and laid me down...
to sleep...
after loving you
