National Poetry Month #26 - Ain't No Cover  
Ain't No Cover
Regina Spektor

it ain't no cover
it ain't no style
I shouldn't bother
he's eight miles high
but I adore him
and I implore him
saying I love none other
but this ain't no style

he sits there smoking
his breath away
he sits there choking
on what they say
but I adore him
and I implore him
saying one of these mornings
I'm going away

the sun is setting
the day is done
good night, my lover
good night, my son
I shouldn't bother
he's eight miles high
but I love none other
til the day that I die

Moscow-born, New-York-based musician Regina Spektor (b. 1980) is my favourite female singer of all time.  But you knew that.
