"I DO NOT LOVE YOU NOR DO I PLAN TO"

 

For my birthday you bought me a pen pal
a child†††††††††††††† but you read all our letters
we played hangman for 8 months†††††††††††† once

The hopscotch††††††††††† just for toe use
Your belief†††††††††††††††† on the smallest talon
owls pantomime†††††††† this confusion††† toy mountains

you accuse me of lion trapping
I Tí SF I R E†† S E A S O NI NC A L I F O R N I A
manes hung on entry

I wear all my jewelry to bed††††† rip the sheets
shhhh you sign†††††††††††††† when bracelets clang
to warn†††††††††††††††††††† I am not a school on fire
