this is a new kinda style?? thoughts?

you are a sad schoolgirl

June 29, 2021

you peel yourself off your bedroom floor
your bones creaking like a train on copper tracks
you pick up the fast food paper straws
soggy and sullen from use

you are soggy and sullen from use
it's no use
you ponder great things;
love, peace and acceptance
you peer out of the window seat
the driver is silent and still

this is hell and its no use
you stand up and flames lick your chin
you are a paper straw swaddled in alcohol
schoolgirls who are sad sip on you in maths class

you are a schoolgirl and you are sad
a heart as heavy as an empty bottle
it chimes like a fast food advert in your bones
you creak and cry and roll with the punches
a car with no driver, a bored fire
a sad school girl, a paper straw
