stop your mouth


stop your mouth
your
Dirty, Nasty, Mouth –
who are you to say
you’ve been made wrong
(twelve-years, straight fringe, precious girl)
because it “doesn’t make sense
(pretty face, crisp, green eyes)
because “you can’t feel like that
you can’t
you’re wrong, you’re –

but it’s not you, it’s me
it was me
still me –
(green eyes, straight fringe, precious, precious)

cut your mouth
your
Dirty, Nasty, Mouth – go on
run
run away from the mad girl and the mad mind
(twenty-five, burnt-out, 24”)
wasted –
run
too much for you and your little mind
little heart,
little sense –
and you’re scared
run
you
coward of the truth

slap shut your mouth
your
Stupid,
Empty,
Glazing Mouth –
your words are fat on the air
children don’t think like that”
oblivious
(a-grade, smiling, precious, precious)
spitting ignorance
(obsessive, pretending, she’s sick and you don’t see)
over the bones you licked clean
