A straight road of chaos
winding through the insides of her
Burning down the highway
Let’s ride it together
Brave it with acid in our heads

A very impious worm eating up
all that’s inside her yet she can
do nothing except to sit
in that stainless steel chair
bought from Ikea
like their model

And all I could do was to stand there
Holding her hands through all the tears
Whose was it? I no longer know…
