What’s a taylor song you almost never listen to but still don’t think is a skip?? For me it’s probably mean
Over my shoulder, eyes peeking in, analyze my every move, what current state I’m in
‘Cause you are colder than ice on my skin, wanna get that A+, baby, so you take my shit
'Cause I am little, right? I won’t call you out
Teacher saying “You’d get credit, why would you stop now?”
You are so desperate, craving that spotlight, shine it on the ones who do the shit 'cause it’s their life
But I know the people around you say “Just do what it takes to make it all the way”
You’re a copy cat, you take it then you leave it, honey
Just like that, just like that, you’re falling flat
You find someone like me to bring you up right back
Obsessed with power, you want it for yourself
Feeding on misogyny but still you call yourself a feminista
If that were really true, you wouldn’t feel as if I were a current threat to you
Wish you the best, won’t show you my next move
So I guess you’ll be upset
Don’t cry, no baby, you’ll find your own way
Think for yourself, it will all be okay

And here’s some other Melanie Martinez lyrics by the way:
A CHANCE TO LOVE | EPISODE 3 | Flustered Can
What if it isn’t a coincidence….what the hell?…..What if I told you I wanted to see you? What are you going to do?….my heart is skipping a beat.
“i’m very frustrated, i’m allowed to yell”
gee, thanks for clearing that up, mom.
the clog in the nodes at your hips,
leaking from breaks, from too much
weight pressed on your haunches.
but, you don’t need another razor
to let the pressure escape through
your wrist— like a ribbon—
from what I overheard.
I’m here with my thumb on the button
trying to keep doors open while you
run to make the lift. let’s pretend
you’re somewhere close to bottom.
lets pretend sons never punched
a hole in your vanity.
who was the new girl this time?
the one responsible for your latest fever?
your coop is riot of old nerves right now
trying to work it out.
[really wish I had some context for this one. sometimes a really mean spirited poem is just what you need to work through some stuff. especially when its coded enough to avoid being vicious. love the title, too.]
In 2010 I wrote a poem a day, everyday, for the entire year. It was an exercise in endurance and agile writing and editing and I learned so much about myself as a poet. A decade later it seems right to mark the achievement or at least revisit the work. In 2020 I’ll be choosing a week at random every month and doing rewrites and reedits of those poems. I might talk about the pieces or apologize for them, but probably will let them do their thing on their own.
when I try to imagine the betty performance tonight this is all I can think off
betty, I’m here on your doorstep !!!
you have to get mean.

It’s funny to me how you’ve turned into such a joke
