Adelaide is smiling
Looking up from the south
Where
Kids
Are paying buck bucks
For new shoes

Because their souls are decaying

Under ultraviolet rays and aquamarine wave tips
That got lost in the ground
She wishes she were at the beach
She stabs hearts
She drinks

Its growing, her blame,
Her eyes look the same
I swear to you her eyes look the same
Bright, like her god forsaken sun

The use of souls as in souls a soles as in shoes (if that makes any sense to you) was really thoughtful. It made me think of things. The poem made me think of things
