"Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but he with a chuckle replied that maybe it couldn't [and maybe it shouldn't], but he wouldn't be the one to say so until he tired" - Edgar Albert Guest

Hold me together with scotch-tape
And thread hairs into my scalp,

For I do not feel like putting myself together.

Paint my face a china doll’s grin
And flood my cracking skin with gorilla glue,

For I am a vampire’s lover
and parched of blood.

Please –
Won’t you form an image for me?
Hold up the mirror so I can see
That which I’ve never tried to obtain.

For I am a dusty carcass
Who just wishes to sleep.
