mash

the mash theme song

plays

the ac

breaks

 

it’s the southern heat

it wraps its tendrils

around your legs

your lungs

she smiles and she sweats

 

there are two of them

 

children feel the heat but they don’t

really feel it they don’t feel the constraint

they don’t feel the humidity in their lungs james

taylor sang about carolina in his mind but that’s

a lie if it were honest it would be carolina in his lungs

 

the mash theme song plays

the tv

reruns

 

the little one is happy

 

they are happy and they are together

 

the mash theme song plays

 

again and again and again

 

and i can take or leave it if i please
