white bread mary poppins

maybe it’s the time of year
maybe it’s the anniversary of pain
maybe it’s the loss of feeling
loss of life, however slight
a certain numbness
creeping in from the night
maybe i shouldn’t stay in this room
maybe i shouldn’t be alone
maybe i shouldn’t long for you
for our wild times past
from this quintessential non-wild child
this white bread mary poppins
fake madonna virgin mary
you always wanted me to be
maybe i shouldn’t blame myself
i could let you take your share
i could forget
i could at least try
and i shouldn’t be alone
in this room tonight


i wrote this a lifetime ago……

…and even after all this time
it can still make me feel
white bread and average
the cloyingly mushy middle
of a brilliant girl sandwich
