      name your price



she draws a mercator as I peel an orange
a woman so massive she fell through the floor
and fiji sounds lovely but I'd just be bored
sit under a palm tree
watch from the shore

and junior I'm sorry it's just my luck
I walked through the doors you wanted shut
there's no need to worry when his name comes up
I'll keep to myself
stare in my coffee cup

the ocean does nothing to quench my thirst
and I can't stand kava it tastes like dirt
and boy you're distracting without your shirt
you've got no way of telling
my feelings are hurt

it's sharing a bottle with the girl you kiss
I can't help but wonder if it's your chap stick
I've got good intentions but a shit compass
I'm orienteering
with a busted lip

"it's water for yuppies," I yell through the door
she says, "it's just water." how can you be sure?
the ironies lost when I exit the store
but if celebrities sell it
then I will buy more

and blue I
feel so wrong
it's all gone
it's written cross my forehead
in sawdust, in honey-I'll
take my tonsils out if you want me to
if you want me too
if you want me to
