She’s So Unusual

You’re going to ruin your life
with all your drinking
all your smoking
your gambling
and attitude
But baby, what doesn’t ruin life?
what is it, chicky-pie
Don’t we ruin our lives by living them?
every second ticking by is ruination
put me on a cryogenic freeze
save me like Hitler’s brain in a jar
drop in fish food flakes
shake me up and turn me over
it’s a winter wonderland brain storm
I say back to you
you
are going to ruin your life
by dissolving into mine
like rat piss
into particle board,
all that’ll be left of you
is a crystalline stain
like a tribal sun
tattoo on the lower back
of a girl who puts it on display
as a sign
of her eclectic
and quirky
individuality.
