Once upon a time You took me out I saw your legs You showed me what you're all about Cradled in your car And passing out You touched my neck And wrote my number down Watching dragonfruit And flowers fade The prices fall We pool together all our change Peel the layers off And take it in Our tummies hurt But we feel better when we're sick

There you are Up at 3 AM Pulling memories Like teeth Peeling back Every layer of skin One thought in your head “Is that me?” There you are Up at 3 AM A swirl of wind A twirling dress Upside down The sky beneath your feet One thought in your head “Is that me?”

I got good advice And I’m not gonna take it I’m not gonna take it I’m living the Sick Life™ I’m only gonna take my meds when I am untied Tie me to a comfy chair Tell me about the world out there And all the ways I’m missing out Give me gas to wash it down Soap me up and slide me out Push me down the stairs Walk me around the park like a dog Pet me and then shut me up Touch me when I’m tethered Give me kibble, cut my kimmels off Feed me when I’m good enough You loved me better the way I was I got good advice And I’m not gonna take it I’m not gonna take it I’m living the Sick Life™ I’m only gonna take my meds when I am untied I got good advice And I’m not gonna take it I’m not gonna take it I’m living the Ill Life™ I’m only gonna take my time when I am untied I got good advice And I’m not gonna take it I’m not gonna take it I’m living the Sick Life™

If I’m not living in pastel Am I even living? If you’re not sickeningly sweet Will I even taste you?

I’m going back To swimming class Call 911 Call me at last Lasting a lifetime Splashing on empty Looking down at you All really loved me There’s a place in you That I cannot see There’s a place in me Where we cannot be

We’ll use our skin as blankets Wrapping us tightly Our tendons tied together Our blood playing on our bones We’ll rip off our jaws Our tongues dangling from our necks We’ll kiss without our lips We’ll swallow our food Slick lumps sliding inside Satiating each other I’ll take your last breath for you We’ll make our last days lovely
