Black lipstick melting, dripping
And smeared in the sweat
Of the blaring lights, glittering heels
And cheap fading leather
And notes scribbled blindly
In Sharpie, and crumpled
And silver pierced tongues
Clicking numbly in sync
To the pulsing guitars
And metal chains glinting
In soft candlelight
So the world turns on,
And the lights blow out.
