Close His Eyes And I'll Kiss You

put the phone down, dear
it’s too late, his heart exploded,
forget about the popcorn,
no, leave it.
now, do it. then get me,
I’m in the dresser, loaded,
now do it, honey. then hold me
to your loving lips, do it
close his eyes and I’ll kiss you

The old playing with song titles game. The Beatles, of course. Tommorrow, I'll miss you, blah blah blah. I appreciate the indulgences everyone has allowed me re: posting poetry or videos. I've had a lot of personal stuff to deal with that started just before Harry's death. But, I'd like to post another video, it goes back to a post I made over the summer about Mike Martinez giving me a CD mix with "Vehicle" by The Ides of March on it. I love these guys because they are from Berwyn (or BER-wynnn?!, as Svengoolie might say), and I really really do dig this song. When it first was played on WLS-AM, Dick Biondi as our radio host, I thought it was Blood, Sweat & Tears. The horns, the voice. But again, I was pretty much an idiot back then...Wayne

And yet the video is straight from THE RIGHT STUFF. I was hoping for a 1970 Dodge Polara rolling underneath the Lake Street elevated tracks.
