Rules Of The Game Of Quoits

The girl in the rubber shoes
Has run away from home
To the gymnasium
The sun in the blinds is blue
& the girl moves through the room
Like an aquarium

Rules of the game of quoits
Use the dimmest light or the brightest light
When the hoops start melting & the sticks catch fire
Rules of the game of quoits
On the softest matting or the hardest floor
When the hoops start melting & the sticks catch fire
Tunics may be worn or torn away
& the rules of the game may be ignored

The boy with the ruddy face
Has left his place of work
For the gymnasium
He enters like a tent
Where the girl has left her scent
Like a geranium

Rules of the game of quoits
Use the softest matting or the hardest floor
When the hoops start melting & the sticks catch fire
Rules of the game of quoits
If your posture's right you can thrust the quoit
When the hoops start melting & the sticks catch fire
Tunics may be worn or torn away
& the rules of the game may be ignored

The girl in the rubber shoes
Pins the ruddy-faced boy to the floor
Of the gymnasium
She's crawling on the spot
She's the ink-rubber, he's the blot
& she erases him

Rules of the game of quoits
In the dimmest light or the brightest light
When the hoops start melting & the sticks catch fire
Rules of the game of quoits
Bend your knees & swing through ninety degrees
When the hoops start melting and the sticks catch fire
Tunics may be worn or torn away
& the rules of the game may be ignored

For love will endure or not endure
Regardless of where we are
