Smooth

Like a Gravy Sandwich

Smooth Like a Gravy Sandwich 
like easy 

when is eatin' gravy on one piece of white bread
open faced 
cause there is not enough 
bread for everyone 
to have two pieces
like easy
?

And smooth, oh yeah- mmm. mmm. 
like that man 
he was a delight- all good lookin' with those eyes 
that followed
cause all he did was sit
sit while you worked
you cired
he was still sittin'
when you told him 
go!

Smooth like sailin'
like a boat 
a boat without a motor 
you have to have an education to drive it.
that smooth 
like sooo smooth 
that everybody does it 
they wear nice clothes 
special gloves so the ropes don't burn
their soft hands
When you go sailin' bring your gloves.

Smooth
like a babies bottom, but 
I would have written cheek
or hand or tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny
foot
or breath
cause that makes more sense
and makes me smile wider
which feels smoother.

So smooth 
so so so so so 
smooth.
I'm gonna say
I prefer the rough. the bark, 
the bite, the truth
the fight. 


Smooth
