Caligula Effects near a Wobbly Moon

Something pretty sitting next to you
in full view of the entire world as they go
something enviable to the kind who envy things
and faces and accessories
and there’s something so cute about me
and a sunset or a full moon somewhere hard
so I look so plump and so soft in contrast
like a talking walking cartoon
bouncing around in slow motion
for people trying to prove
they know the cutting edge
Something pretty sitting next to you
in full view of the entire world as they go
something desirable to the kind who desire beings
and with their faces as accessories
and the edge’s cut is it’s inherent beauty
in a complete and total utter mess
that’s what you really want from me
a rose in your lapel
scent sniffers notice an illusion
so by choosing
to align with a queen on the board
simply there to make you seem to be more
you score
Something pretty sitting next to you
a dog or a rose bush will do
in full view of the entire world as they go
something enviable to the kind who envy things
and faces and accessories
I understand completely
I want that too see
but I want to be the one who made the choice
to have something pretty sitting next to me
we can’t both have insecurities…
