what life is this?

city
girl
talks too much
or not at all
perma uppers
roller coaster ride
fun house
full
of
terror

honey mustard
for
the fries
a drive thru
on a Saturday
sleep in
avoiding pain
November
finds
20 degrees

the bank clock
running
fast at Frandsen
flashing
from the curb
at Culvers
voodoo dolls
it was a gift
from
New Orleans

i said
i want Lolita
we got
Zombieland
instead

what life is this?
i thought
it was
oh, how i
have been mistaken
