put all your hypocrisy into
your bite, it’s okay.
just don’t wimp out
hit me with only best intentions
and you can brand me all over, hot stuff
if you really please, even,
be the hostage-taker of hallmark card memories, but
would you even want
them (us) otherwise?
if not for the painkillers
we’d be awake all night
if not for black-market sedation and barcoded love notes
apparently we wouldn’t be doing this right.
or am i reading the instructions wrong?
