Valentines

and so

she draws little red hearts on her cheeks

excited for the day ahead

all the hope for sparks and flying liquids

certainly go to her head

let’s swim in the champagne of our souls

before we get too old

 

and then she cracks it open at  home

all alone

nothings changed

cork on tights

champagne for one tonight

or for none, more like.

 

She goes to the sink

ready for her drink

tries

to wash off those little red hearts

drown them

scrub at them

once

twice

thrice

layers peel off one by one

under the bubbles thickening

but still a thin layer stays

stubborn

it won’t fade

 

go away

 

please, please go away

you little red fuckin hearts.

please, please go away

you little red fuckin hearts

 

she’ll wait for the morning to come

she’ll hope for the best that the marks are all gone

scrub away

scrub away

that’s all you can do

scrub away

scrub away

till it evaporates,

scrub away

scrub away

it will eventually

scrub away

scrub away

it all goes

naturally

scrub away

scrub away

it all goes

it all does

c’est la vie
