i am ready
i am ready for the sun against my skin
heavy makeup on my eyelids
blood red lips, strut down the streets.
i dance into the night and drift
by day, i am an unknown
i dress in my black clothes
i buy flowers from the flowershop
he ask me, where are you going my lady?
i smile. i put my sunglasses on
France, Spain and Italy
but first back to my room
to drink some tea.
Well enjoy mon cherie! I will monsieur
thank you for the flowers
let me pay you with words
they last longer than beauty or money
Small children run pass me
Along in the park, i do not smoke
but already i am old.
time is ticking. tick tock.
To be consumed by the world or consume it,
i hear the voices around me,
they chant and scream
it won't be easy. YOU WILL PERISH.
PERISH WILL YOU!
WILL YOU PERISH?
i rise and stomped thee
because i know
i know i must be ready.
