I keep falling in love
  with my mother,
I dont want to hurt her
-Of all people to hurt.

Every time I see her
  she's grown older
But her uniform always
  amazes me
For its Dutch simplicity
And the Doll she is,
The doll-like way
  she stands
Bowlegged in my dreams,
Waiting to serve me.

  And I am only an Apache
  Smoking Hashi
  In old Cabashy
  By the Lamp.
