COLUMBIA PLATEAU MORNING TIME


The PRICE IS RIGHT is on the telly
Bob Barker's enjoying retirement
As Drew Cary is taking center stage
So she can go to Barcelona, Spain

Molly was there before
In 1977 I think
Along the sea shore with a nanny
She and her dad got dysentery

Loving my babies
And their babies further
An unknown call comes in
I wonder if it's you

Or who
As I take the garbage to the street
It's 14 degrees F with ice and snow on the ground
The freeze is disheartening

Wanting to warm up to the sun
Behind the clouds of off white
It's the night time of life for me now
I slept my day away all night

There's drama from this momma
But more on TV
As in 10 minutes THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
Will feel the screen

Words of trying to solve concerns
Where handsome men will
Save perfectly made-up women
Filmed in NYC, USA, where I cannot imagine

How the cold permeates the concrete walls
Freezes the streets, and overflows to bones
Of millions and millions
Columbia Plateau Morning Time

Drink it down
With three cups of sweet coffee
Melt the walls of ice
With heat that speeds up the rate of a reaction.
