We used to pass notes in hallways
Both heading to different routes
la clase de espanol esta a la espera
Tripping over untied shoe…laces
yours was intricate
tied in criss-crosses…
criss-cross criss-cross
criss-cross tick-tock
the bell was so damn loud
made our blood boil over and cloud
over thin skin
hazel with vanilla vanilla with hazel
makes coffee great
makes coffee expensive
makes coffee dangerous
coffee ammu brought on cold mornings on the way to the 5
5 5 5 5 …
march the 5th we celebrated your mama’s feat
spreadin’ her legs for the show
gave you 555 kisses
555 kisses in the dark
555 kisses telepathically traveled
555 kisses in my mind
cuz you said it was a secret
like those scratched on bathroom stalls during lunch
the type o’secrets that weren’t secrets
the type o’ secrets that I was looking forward to
the type o’secrets that you failed to keep

keep countin’ the days it went on
keep countin’ on my fingers, toes, eyes, nose
keep countin’ while you talked to friends
keep counting the names they had
names names names
mine didn’t make me any cooler
mine kept secrets
mine fawned over you
mine thought it deserved things
yours knew things
that great mother-f***ing oracle
knew it deserved things
knew that you’d get me
get me right under those jordans
those air jordans whose airs would crush me to my death
to broken hearts and shame
shame shame shame
being caught with dirt under my fingernails
blood and skin buried deeper
got none of the celebrity status
just wanted you to show me off
for once just once just once
the quite one with the big boobs
the quite one with aspirations
the quite one that didn’t deserve s***
the quite one who didn’t deserve
didn’t deserve
didn’t deserve…
