EUPHEMISMS FOR

 

i am the human
i imitate light
i put bees before antlers

i whistled superciliously
i ate the broken acorn
i had a tantrum at the grocery

will the candlewax forgive me
will the filaments forgive me
will my mother forgive me

will swearing kill me
will eating chocolate kill me
will a psychiatrist kill me

am i invisible
am i invincible
am i immortal

can i kiss you on the red line
can i pull your hair
can i see you in austin

will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me

i buried the anthill
i tried to find you
i got lost

will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me
