past lives

Stay alive for lip gloss
Bubblegum and peach schnapps
Lemonade picnics and pocket money
Tell everyone your secrets
Dye your hair
Sleep with someone in a band
Read Cosmo not Kerouac
Scream and slam your bedroom door
Smirnoff Ice and stolen lipstick
McDonald’s on a Friday night
Holding hands with your best friend
Choking on a cigarette

Black nail polish
Maybelline dreams
Learn kissing from the movies
Tears and music that
Rolls like thunder
Glitter hormones and
Rage in shimmering tangerine

Young love murder
Is the heel of a black stiletto
Piercing your chest
