Dream Girl

Poppies and WD-40, Chloe Moulin

Mania tastes like a Monster

Smells like cigarette butts

Bleach gasoline

And gripping the clutch

Infidelity shows up too

Grows in Tindr swipes right

Purging sweating

Lemme take a bite

Avoidance: to hide in bright lights

Tone-deaf till the beat drops

Parking tickets

Lipstick and skid marks

Jitters sift through stretched out eyelids

Permanent ten-shot high

Angel dust bitch

Self-sucking heel clicks

Tastes I’ve grown to despise.
