( )

i'm all alone this is a holiday

some bloody holiday

my friends have gone away

( )

they're of the temp-or-ary sort i think

i will be better without

as long as you let me out

( )

to taste the air beside the river

i pick the soundtrack with immaculate care

( )

such a lot rests upon it

my life upon a song

you don't know how much i need

musician, please take heed

( )

i thought i might just write a letter

anything to stay away

from books and lessons today

( )

besides, it's part of my induction

into the literate world

i am a literate girl

( )

i string the words together softly

i lay my love upon you with each line

( )

a gift of improvising

removes me from revising

i made a daisy chain from

phrase, verse, and punctuation

( )

ill kick this mood off with a change of scene

i bought a leotard i'm going to the gym

( )

i couldn't get away with wearing it all summer

but i've lost a lot of weight

i think it's down to leaving meat

out of my diet as a rule

i wont buy it 'cause it's cruel

( )

and if the nighttime threatens me with pain

i will give into lust

i will do what i must

( )

i've got a number of a girl i know

who gets hallucinogens from a pair of hooligans

( )

ill take a dose i don't mind trying

she lets me stay there while i leave the ground

( )

i slow go off beside her

think that i'll stay 'till morning

she's got me started yawning
