I Wrote A Good Omelet - Poem by Nikki Giovanni

I wrote a good omelet...and ate
a hot poem... after loving you
Buttoned my car...and drove my
coat the rain...
after loving you
I goed on red...and stopped on
green...floating somewhere in between...
being here and being there...
after loving you
I rolled my bed...turned down
my hair...slightly
confused but...I don't care...
Laid out my teeth...and gargled my
gown...then I stood
...and laid me down...
To sleep...
after loving you
