Underworld

the first time my body quivered against  your touch

                                                          city lights exploded

 

darling the smell of your skin is

                                          blinding

   and i don’t ever wanna see the future

 

you are so young and i’m even younger

and my mama cried when she saw where you bit me

 

i work so hard to twirl my lashes

                         i hide behind pink petticoats and bows

but darling i’m dying

       for the taste of smoke on your tongue

 

teacher told me i got potential

but i can write sonnets from the back of your car

 

i don’t ever wanna reach the sun
