I Fell In Love Today

from by Te Kooti Brotherhood



I fell in love today with another girl from the big screen
She was beautiful
And I imagined when she might make a film down here
And I would bump into her at a café
And make her laugh
And pretend like I don’t know her
And hope she won’t ever notice that I’ve been liking her Instagram for the past year
And a half
along with all her other thousands of followers

And out of all the scum bags in this world
She’d seem to like my joke enough
To let me be her tour guide for just one day

And I’d take her up Mount Eden
And out to Muriwai to watch the gannets fly
And we’d walk through the Domain
And make a picnic and I’d pray the day would never end
Oh what a day, Oh what a day we’d have

And she’d see something in me that none of my friends can see,
Or none of the girls that have ever been in my life
And we’d watch her films til sunrise and they’d make us cry
And we’d talk sitting out on my front porch about our lives
and I can’t believe my eyes
and I can’t believe that the stars would align

And I can’t believe what would transpire
as a balloon swelling up
my head bouncing with all the others online
tasting the nectar of beautiful lives
well far removed from mine
with the swelling clotting my mind
as the clock reads 2am
Voyeuring my way into another sad year
