dont drink the punch

her almond eyes
mouth like a cherry pie
perfect creases down the back of her dress

brick house legs
see how she sways
strategic positioning of her C-cup breasts

This is a game.
Some silly game.
Make you think this is what you wanted.
Then she’s not the same.
Switches up the game.
Make you think this is what you wanted.

you might have listened
but how your eyes glistened
when she told you how it was going to be

under twenty-five
but her clock keeps ticking by
even after she gave you her virginity

You know her name.
It’s some random name.
But you think this is what you want.
Then she’s not the same.
But she’s still got that name.
Convinced this is what you want.

Take a look at the flowers in her hair, see how she stares
At babies and silver bands.
At KitchenMaid and playground sand.

powerful position
and you might have listened
when I told you what to watch for

barely past drinking age
but she’s far beyond that stage
opportunity knocked and you opened the door

This is a game.
You know her name.
But she’s got you pegged for what you want.
Then she’s not the same.
Everything has changed.
Nailed you down when you got what you want.

She nailed you down when she gives you what you want.
