Aimee’s “Simple Twist of Fate” (For Aimee Mann)

No excess baggage
Everything shimmers
Relics need not apply

Umbrella weather
Wears a blue raincoat like the tattoo of a blueberry
Even the blind man was impressed by her measurements

If you overstep I’ll be there to check and balance your open heart
You sing Bob like Nico sang Lou and if it wasn’t for social distancing maybe we could share a bowl of soup
I’m just being silly because in all honesty I was very uncomfortable with how much blood you bled on the tracks
