about

Jane Brooks Seattle, Washington

I'm new to music. The ukulele is my midlife crisis. I like things simple, plain, sloppy, except of course when I don't. I miss the friends I don't get to see anymore. Sometimes these songs are for them.

VERSE
I want to learn the grammar of your skin
And diagram the passion in your eyes
The language of our bodies could fill folios with sonnets
But your lips touch mine and all my words go gushing down my thighs

CHORUS
I want you to VERB ME. Verb me deep. Verb me strong.
Verb me righteously and tenderly and couple of ways that are wrong,
Verb me upside down and inside out until my knees are weak,
til my eyes bug out, my face turns red, until I just can't speak…

VERSE
Would you just kindly take your adjectiving finger
And circle round my adverb moistened noun?
I'm certain that your fluid sentence structure
Will locate all the places where my expletives are found.

CHORUS
I want you to VERB ME. Fill my mouth with similes!.
Wave that juicy noun in my face til I can't remember how to say please.
Verb my over here and my under there. Verb me on my knees on the the kitchen floor
And paint my face with a fire hose of sticky metaphors!

BRIDGE
Please pardon my aphasia
And my touch of synesthesia.
Your vast lingual dexterity knocks the air out of my lungs.
I'm losing my capacity
For fucking rationality
Do that thing again and pretty soon I'll be speaking in tongues!

CHORUS
I want you to VERB ME. Verb me fast, you wordy whore.
Verb me like you've never verbed a person’s area before
Take that noun of yours and pound it in my motherfucking parts
Make me scream like I invented goddamn exclamation marks!


Just fucking VERB ME. Verb me deep. Verb me strong.
Verb me tenderly and righteously and couple of ways that are wrong,
Verb me upside down and inside out until my knees are weak,
til my eyes bug out, my face turns red, until I spring a leak…

Just fucking VERB ME.
