Dear Liz...

Dear Liz,

I saw you at the Roxy,
You autographed my heart.
After that, I chased you,
Through Raintree County
And straight across William's
Hot tin roof.
Suddenly, last summer,
You were the bridesmaid
Once again.
Butterfield 8
Was worth the wait.

I left you in your prime,
Long before RB
For the second time.
Take five,
Your life is in the can.
Sincerely yours,
From the edge of my seat
…a fan.
