Yellow pages in a blue chest of drawers

 I once stole a yellow pages from off the steps

Of a lovely New York building

In a lovely Greenwich Village

My idea

Was to give it as a gift

To my brother

A something you can’t buy

I remember the yellow pages ending up in the top drawer

Of a blue chest of drawers i had left in my lovers garden

Later after we had sadly split up

I returned to her and her garden

To find the yellow pages intact in the blue chest of drawers

But of course out of date

Further i found that the blue chest of drawers

Was in more of a sad state than i wanted it to be in

I looked through the drawers for hours

Finding only life changing invoices

That were unpaid and very very late
