BLACK SWAN

 

 

i heard you weren’t a swan at all
just pretending, that’s all

 

i heard they kicked your ass
i asked if there was any blood
& how much, did it pool all over?
like spilled cream?

 

was it sweet? like mine when you did it?

 

 

 

 

(I CAN’T EVEN)

 

 

my stars ain’t running
some kind of bullshit charity

 

so, if you’re ready to eat the crystals,
let’s do it. no foolin’.

 

then, we’ll be foxes. or, are you you
just a possum?
