the wind is a spunky chihuahua nipping at my naked ankles
pink and dead, my two raw steaks that step on confetti barf
silly string and snow make the birthday cake icing
it’s the new year, it’s 2008 and i have to pee
the dancer in forever 21 is collecting dollars to the gossip
while megan double fists her cigs and kelly pours the champagne
dj says take one last breath before the drop. it smells like garbage
