Red Chagall Baby

been in uniform too long
and i know you need to feel like a woman
have me treat you like your man

)and there we go with that word – like – again(

buy you a red Marc Chagall dress
same one worn in ‘equestrian’

-and he could paint love on the big screen-

i’m from the small screen
small towns and big country lifestyle
where country dresses are white
and see thru when wet….

-and this isn’t objectifying you(

thinking deeply about my woman
whose been in uniform far too

)Red Chagall Baby-

and i’ll get the steed from
the back field

ride side saddle…..

*Marc Chagall was a Russian-French artist. His painting Equestrienne was completed in 1931 in Paris France.
