a dense ball of bubblegum
in the bus that time you pulled up my
today my relationship with men my
relationship with love
like a brain opening revealing a knife
piercing your heart
my emotions seep through like wetness
and are damp and cold
the shock for criticism i’m ready for
for people to call me gross and run away
when running along their fingertips
and yet i’m better than you big red
because i once was fruity
one time i was cute and now i’m awash
hard and ugly i’m angry in fact
put me in your mouth and feel the hard
piece of bubblegum
i don’t want to talk and i don’t want to
see i want to be over you
i want you to never forget
my eyes like bite marks
