Now here she comes...walking through the that look. Since/
Kids are behind me eating steak and soup, talking 'bout beatbreaks and loops/
And it's sad to say...I'm just a poetry fag actin' gay in my black beret/
To drink an ice coffee and kill a bit of time before the matinee/
Now I'm trying to avoid eye contact. Lets see if I can fool her/
Squinting my eyes, acting like I'm really serious about this mess of non-sensical pen action/
Is she still there? Standing awkwardly glaring? I think not/
Is she going stop making me waste ink from my pen as I sit and pretend/
Myself into meditation...and I'm on the brink of Zen/
She's STILL scoping! in fact, this chick's a 10/
Once she gets her grip on men they simply bend/...backwards.
Who all profess their love for all of her protruding features/
So dope, I'd have to smuggle her across state lines or else pay fines/
She's a non-conformist freak who only comes out in the daytime/
"Don't look at me." I can feel the burn of her stare on my sensitive skin/
Plus, I'm allergic to the medicine of sexual healing/
Now I'm covering up my crotch region by crossing my legs/
into my forearms. I should...invite her for a cup of Joe/

Naturally...Now my thoughts spin...and she's on the "out" for sure/
I activate testicular bravery and I shout to her/
Our eyes lock.

and I say "Hi, I'm not/
trying to hit on you like the way all these other guys jock/

I'd be glad to front the cost of a date with you as long as you pay me back/
And I know my facial hair is weird...but I've been waiting for someone like you to shave my beard/
I'm usually more discreet about my insecurities, but today...I just ain't prepared."/
And I was like "Uhhh...yeah.../
Nervous twitches were initiated and out nostrils flared/

She looked at my napkin and noticed what I wrote/
I said "The funny thing is...I could have used you as a muse/
Mass amounts of unsent love letters and out-of-tune love ballads/
It's untrue. I don't want to create a first impression I can't live up to/

So I jumped up on her shoulders as we exited the entrance.
