Jianni’s from Australia 
but she’s here to stay, 
with her hair like golden sunlight 
on a summer’s day.
Her eyes caught the sun in Sydney 
and there it remains, 
it shines through her skin and laughter 
makes the shadows sway

That Chinese blood of hers 
is reaching for the fire 
that was lit by Durrel books 
Full of poetry or higher. 
Her brain is full of words 
from all the poets she admires 
… she gets by fine…

Jianni doesn’t like the cold 
it once made her weep 
she was forced to wait for a night bus 
when she needed sleep.
But she was out the next night, 
the cold won’t keep her down; 
you can’t help but feel warm inside 
when Jianni’s around.


Jianni’s got her own place now, 
the cheapest place she took, 
she travels with a trunk of clothes 
And an Allen Ginsberg book.
She gets itchy thighs sometimes 
and she’ll let you know 
Jianni is beautiful 
she’s all the boys in tow.


Jianni’s from Australia 
and she fell in love, 
but it stopped her from being happy 
so she gave it up.
And love and loss are a perfect way to 
douse a flame 
but jianni’s soul is burning, 
she’ll burn again.
