You Know the One

Sorority suicide poem

You know the one and you know how you sneered

And yet there are college-aged women deciding to kill themselves everyday

What with their college-aged lives and college-aged problems

What does that balloon look like

Thirty-eight ain't doing me so bad

Put your thumb on this, discard that

You looking at a cube on one side then another

Field after field of lines

Give of yourself, take of yourself

Bad habit your way through a bad moment -- it happens to all of us

Which is like the best of us or the best of the rest or an average Wednesday

You see it happening, but when do you feel it happening?

I heard that the speed of light is back

A girl can dream

A girl can cross the street without looking

A girl can die, I hear
