"Hear her sing

'Christ is born'

Faking every word that slips from her

Rose-petal lips,

p e r f e c t i o n

Like when her parents caught her with another girl

And she just smiled as if

Nothing

Was wrong

(all they did was close the door)

Apathy is the angel

On

Her

Shoulder

Breathing red-eyed flight plans for tomorrow.

'Comfort is overrated.'"
