Susie

Susie, Susie

What did you do?

You partied too long and

Now you’re Old Sue.

 

Steely eyes

Chunky thighs

Forty-eight years

Chugging beers

 

Explodes into a room

Sings out of tune

Cackles and smokes

One of the blokes

 

Always for a good time

Always with a crude rhyme

Famous is our Old Sue

A truly mad true blue

 

Riding on her high horse

With a dolphin tattoo of course

Right by her high g-string

Accompanied with K-mart bling

 

Yet she is aware

How everyone stares

Of her cliché status

How everyone chatters

 

Better to be known

Than a no-one

She basks in it

Not giving a shit

 

Life has gone too fast

She’s still stuck in the past

A queen of Highschool

Now of ridicule

 

Susie, Susie

What did you do?

You partied too long and

Now you’re old Sue.

Crawl

Fingernails tunneled deep into mud
Scooping burrowing crescents
Earth smell compacted nose to brain
Lactic acid swelled in biceps
Embracing the earth
Like snake or worm
Leaking legs grew cold
Hands hastened by the drag
Of the hourglass losing sand
Disorientated memories flood
Of a lifetime far behind
Silenced by a shadow
