I Don’t Speak Mexican

You loved her but you didn’t,

You’ve been reading Neruda?

Who in the hell’s Neruda?

Just some guy.

So you loved this woman

But you never got it on?

Sort of.

What do you mean sort of?

This may sound crazy,

I’ve never met her,

Just some notes and emails.

 It’s not crazy man,

You’ve met her,

In another time

Another sphere

It’s just not clear

To an earthly mind,

But you’ve met her.

Who is this guy Neruda?

A writer who lived in Chile.

Why in hell would I read

Some guy from Chile,

I don’t speak Mexican!
