papercut princess

.

a summer secret in the form

of fourteen roses hid behind

the vegas city lights

tattooed within her

biscuit eyes

.

a princess of thieves

and papercut poetry,

she's renaissance in a

coffee cup

.

the aftertaste of a

stolen saltwater kiss

burning like wildfire,

tearing images of

gods and ghosts

.

a daydreamer fading hastily

before the sun jumps off

the asylum's rooftop

.

just another tribeca doll

singing in resonance to her

loaded shotgun

.

bang bang bang

bang

.
