gonna kick tomorrow


my life is full of light and I am righteous
in my suit of mirrors, so happy when
everything is so wrong

the habit, the habit

the god of pills is crouched down
in the corner of my room and he’s
not leaving soon enough for you

the failing, the failure

you, on the edge of the bed with
my quick love in your hands
you can’t look at me now

I’ll try again tomorrow
