Cadmium lips at play;

Dusky shadows light and gay;

But who told you to stay

Where boredom etches life away.

Derek’s Cut

 I like to get a cut now and then

Cause you can show it to a friend.

Like, I let Lori see my toe.

It was fun to see her face scrunch up

And hear her holler, “Oooh!”

 But when I showed my sore to Vernon

“That’s not so much,” he said,

And showed me where he had

Some stitches once, six across his head.

 My teacher made me wash away

And cover up the fun.

But that’s okay with me.

Someday soon I’ll have another one.
