you played heroin by the velvet
underground and asked me
to be your girlfriend.
whatever that means.
effortless, you said, we are effortless and
we owe it to each other to try this, don't
twenty six going on sixteen and
i'm not quite sure what you mean, my
skin's thick with perfume and my
armor's showing through
brick by sharpened brick or late night
calls to babysit, this was effortless
easy like the way i skip meals,
easy the way you throw up in
bookstore bathrooms, easy how you
let her in your bed, easy you're so
easy you're so
panicked drives and tan lines
i drew a heart on your hand and
let it sink in. sometimes you lose and
sometimes you lose.
