british punk [mrs billings]

staple gray shirt down

black mini skirt
zippers with little metal rings

arms go up
belly shows

staple that
gray shirt down.

i have to correct you on one thing
i don't wear an inch thick
of hot pink creme around my eyes
for attention

i cut myself for attention

i wear an inch thick
of hot pink creme around my eyes

so perhaps in the right light
i'll catch a glare

and the life around me
will look a little brighter

but mostly i do it
because i hate my eyes.

let's be honest

thanks for noticing

but you were always the one
who needed the attention.
