Love Among The Rock And Roll Ruins

for chris murray
in far off bahrain

We were making love on the waterbed
with the two dead Beatles
on either side of us,

Beatle boots digging into my back
and you were yelling,
“Yoko, bitch, get the hell out.

John’s fucking dead,
go back to your kamikaze land!”
I was kissing your nipples,

I was kissing your thighs,
I Wanna Hold Your Hand
was playing on the computer.

Sailfish and blue whales
were swimming in the fish tank.
Our pet shark was attacking Paul.

I don’t know what happened afterwards
but I think John’s body fell off the bed.
Don’t know about George.

Next morning we found
John’s body in the living room
and laughed our asses off over the irony.
