She Caught Her By the Mouth

Sometimes, when you change the pronouns in
a song, you forget that they’re not the
original pronouns in the song.


How Old Am I?

I dropped my reading
glasses cause I was
trying to sit down
with my walking stick.

great. They’re like

Baby, Did You Forget?

from wanting to do just that.


Stay with me, for I am scared.
Stay until I fall asleep;
still be here when I awake.
