martyrdom

join The Mag creative writing group


to hell with you
if you don't like tiger lilies
or blinking Christmas lights
not everything has to be an opera
dutifully stuffed
into a friggin' Victorian costume

shoulda toldya that up front
instead of chewing on my lip
and breathing your thin air
I swear
you're gonna make me a saint someday
to hell with you
