Let’s Get Lost
I am insanely attracted to you.
Please make me an inmate in your asylum
and give me a bad prognosis.
These characteristics qualify me
to become your new girlfriend:
I am portable and flexible.
My eyelids click like a doll’s.
My doll heart is teeming
with bioluminescent organisms.
Also, I have a keychain that meows.
Just press the button.
Let’s get bathetic.
Let’s get sloshed
in a glass of crushed ice…
