september -
i've been under
the illusion it's
a sunday
for four days,
i sit on your knee
at the kitchen table,
roll one of the
bullets under my finger
cold gold and
and smooth,
do you know what
that is? -
yeah
but i don't think
you do -

he says
you're fuckin weird,
you know that? fuckin
cold, maybe i'll just
start calling you
winter -

and he does

november -
they grace me with
three days, and i cannot
convince you
to come with me

december -
the only time i like you
is when you're asleep,
i gnaw one leg out of
a trap
just to crawl my way
into another

(it takes everything i have not to smash my bottle over your head)

I think it's about a father and a daughter.

"I've been under

also, "you're fuckin weird"

I don't know how to explain it, but this sums up so much for me. Experiences, experiences.

I know a couple of people I'd like to smash a bottle with. Excellent, as usual.
