I saw you for a brief moment
  Yesterday
Your hair was the length of
A football field
   And as dark as the pigment
Of my imagination

Even in your evening gown
You could kick
    Like Trinity from The Matrix
And give your favorite
Retired thong
New life as
     A slingshot

You are everything I can't
    Remember
    -- Or at least a little bit of it
And I could love you maybe
    Or at least like you

But I know you're not
    Real
You can't be real...

Like Mac N Cheese
You are just another
     Honest-to-goodness
Disappointment
     Right out of the box
