19. THE LEGEND OF THE CELESTIAL PRINCESS, OR HOW TO MAKE IT UP TO ME IN SEVEN EASY STEPS

Listen boy, you’d better prove your worth

Bring me seven trays filled
    with the hearts of mosquitoes

Run the bubble bath overflow
    of tears that are never-fucked

I don’t need much but I need all that I ask for

Mixed drinks with hot milk
A salt & vinegar gum weekend

Listen boy, the price you pay for tickling
    is blood and beetlenut

So if your ribs aren’t glass
    why cry when they snap?

I’m not demanding—they tell me
    I’m debutante and licketysplit

If you want to keep me happy
        just go for the twirl
