Tabloogatron Of My Dreams

By carlosjackal

Comeback set
My heart let loose

Please turn into
A pair of arms
Deliver me
In tiger balm
"I beg your pardon!"
Said the Marm 
But she don't really exist

I may be back
I once was gone

Transform like wires
In ways armadillos
Won't find cute
Create new sounds
On a Buick flute 
Then set up home in Puebla 

I may be back
I once had front

Turn me raisins
Sunny days
Ecstacy in gamma rays
The middle's warm
But it's the edge that pays
Winter blanket blues

Back to front
And so much fun

Whispers through the lonesome tears
The hugs that held me close, my dear 
Raven temples destroy my fears 
I'm the girl I always wanted

Back again
This Tiger's won
