Miss Otis Regrets

She’s unable to love today

Her purse with the pink dots was stolen yesterday
Or so she thinks

Tiger the bulldog misbehaved, bit into and ruined a shoe

And anyway it’s one of those cloudy days over Paris
à la couleur toute grise

Miss Otis regrets,
she’s unable to love today

– Johannes Beilharz (© 2012)

Written and painted as a result of listening to the old jazz standard Miss Otis Regrets (sung by Maxine Sullivan, 1911-1987) today.
