others conquered love but i ran

this is one of my favourite poems. it's called i wanna be yours by manchester performance poet john cooper clarke.

i wanna be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
i wanna be your ford cortina
i will never rust
if you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
you call the shots
i wanna be yours

i wanna be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
i wanna be your dreamboat
when you want to sail away
let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
i don’t care
i wanna be yours

i wanna be your electric meter
i will not run out
i wanna be the electric heater
you’ll get cold without
i wanna be your setting lotion
hold your hair in deep devotion
deep as the deep atlantic ocean
that’s how deep is my devotion

currently listening to:
since yesterday ~ strawberry switchblade
the greatest ~ cat power
genius of love ~ tom tom club
you don't have to say you love me ~ dusty springfield
