Play It Again, Salmonella

...I carried white lies so far they changed

colors, I held tantrums in my pocket

a long time, before I actually threw them.

I was born with dynamite in my chest.

Some days I wish the real me would would stand up

and shout table for ten, por favor!

I'm an emotional cripple, putting

his best crutch forward. My heart is a child

clutching his breath underwater. I know

these buttons don't control anything

but I push them anyway and pretend.

I'm a card carrying member of a canceled party...
