When I meet someone whose name doesn’t rhyme with anything
I feel elated as one might traveling first class on a cruise ship

Not a modern one, which I understand are both gross and awful
but an old one, the Cunard line, with Barbara Stanwyck on it

how nice and mysterious it is to be aboard
in such grand company and all the ocean and stuff

even though it’s just a movie

it is a wonderful idea no matter
one of those wonderful ideas

that don’t rhyme with anything
and you can’t recall very well
once you come home

and feed the beagle
and eat a schnitzel 

and wait
