I was sitting on a curb in the village with my first girlfriend. Some crazy homeless guy passed us, so invigorated by our lesbianism, calling us "beautiful passionate Indian animals". I loved that line, because we were.


in my past life i was a mermaid
i would sit on the rocks and watch the horizon
one day a ship crashed all the men drowned
and they sank to the bottom beside my house
i buried them beneath the sand and they
rose up and floated back to land
except for one man!
he swam

now i cant afford a car
i wouldnt make it as a student in college
now i gotta find a job
and put an ID in my wallet

bringing me down
down to the bottom with your claws wrapped around me
now youre swinging this blade
as the flame brushes past your face

i dont wanna be the cause of your disbelief
but you know the routine, its not you its me
theres a million other fish in the sea
why waste your time waiting
