I Wrote a Good Omelet by Nikki Giovanni

I wrote a good omelet…and ate
a hot poem…after loving you
.
Buttoned my car…and drove my
coat home…in 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
