honey

Charlotte Gainsbourg ~ AnOther
via Magpie Tales

come dancing
they ask me
i’d rather play with the pipers

climb their hooks
their holy little arias
like private monkeybars

snake charmed, i can hear
the beating of their blood
in every blessed word

how amazing
how sweet the struggling
my sticky fingers reach

touching blood, wine
cigarette ash and tears
what a lovely paste for pictures

come dancing
they ask me
just try to be like the others

i tried, but it’s no use
i like the company
of my pipers
