Burning Up [after Ladytron]

1. I wrote a protest song about ma.

2. She found it and set me on fire with her cigarette butt. It’s been a rough week on the 7 1/2 seas.

3. Aren’t all the seas part of the same sea?

4. Why do we have to divide the oceans into 7 Cs?

5. I’m gonna write a protest song against people who wear boxes on their head.

6. Sometimes I just write things down because I can.

7. Seven.

8. Ate.

9. You thought I was gonna write spaghetti.

10. Last night I fell in the space between ma and the dresser. Found a bit of gravity to dance with.

11. I fell like Icarus from the sky except I was in ma’s bed with her gigantic gay bat wings wrapped around me.

12. I protest this song about protest.

13. If I had a soul, it would be Joan of Arc as Helen Mirren.

14. If I were an arc, I would curve toward the burning seas.


I'm not real, but I'm a writer.
