Cleaving Eigner


“Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak”
—Chet Baker, “My Funny Valentine”

funny valentine—sweet comic valentine
my spastic love—sounds so strange
but if you care for me—stay awhile
my little valentine—you make me
smile with—my heart
my mouth gets—a little weak
when I open it—to speak
my looks are laughable—I know
and my figure—less than Greek
but please stay—my funny valentine
my sweet—comic valentine
you’re so—unphotographable
stay please—stay awhile
my favorite—work of art
but please don’t—change your hair
for me—if you care for me
stay—my little valentine
each day is—valentine’s day
