there's oxygen in my veins
+ mercury in the air
+ I don't think anyone'll dare
to come near me today

It remains to be seen
that I can light gasoline
+ even break a mirror
how I wish you were here

I've broken my last shard of glass
the pieces are too small
to make smaller
"I'm sorry I'm not your daughter"

If curiosity kills cats
+ sidewalk cracks break moms' backs
then we must become acrobats
+ keep our eyes on the line
