rust_teeth_grit

i don't need an app
to tell me snow is on the

way.

as if there was any doubt --

pins and needles
needles and pins
rusted red piercing joints
twisting twisting twisting
walking with pebble in shoe
with no shoes
knife blades pushing through
to burrow under kneecaps
try to pop them off
twisting twisting twisting

and hand crushed sheets mantra
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the pain away
she'll kiss the...

though she never comes my way
