Candy

The tub is warm, her veins are cold

The water’s high, her heart rate low.

She’s reach Venus with one more hit

She’ll reach Mars with one more dip.

Little girl, pretty girl, tired girl

Lucid world, broken world, spinning world.

Honey on bread, drip, drip

Paint on walls, strip, strip.

TV static blaring loud

Blanket on face, muffled sound.

Fluorescent lighting buzzing – strung out

Pen ink scratches – words crossed down.

Red lipstick writing on the walls

Black eye, broken ribs, shriveled balls.

Clenched fists, memories erased,

Wipe that grin from your mother’s face

Put your pain inside her brain

Cry until your eyes make rain.

Bread soaked honey, drip, drip

Walls peeling paint, strip, strip.

She’ll reach Venus, give her one more hit

She’ll reach Mars, give her one more dip.
