they left together, hands
interlaced
together they lay
after their fun
(fun has ended—
he wants what he wants so
give
him
your
all)
"wipe the lipgloss from your lips
smear the eyeliner down your cheek
wash the mascara from your lashes
and then snip-snip them off"
(he doesn't want to see them
at all
as they flut-flutter to the tiles)
"wash the glitter from your cheeks
and shave the hair from your head
you won't look like a psycho
I swear-swear-swear—fuck (see?)
and cut-cut in with a razor
take it slow, take it fast
rip the skin from eye to chin
tear away your beautiful sin"
