heel and toe
dance inconsolably slow
you felt it now
you watched your hair fall out
oh poor cow
sweetheart you are what you are
aghast, a gash, an earmarked bell jar

he came clean
and quick with penicillin
and promethazine
I guess she never mentioned it

sit transfixed
like cowering complacence proves there's greatness to you
and all that you're entitled to
oh rabbit, rabbit
righteous white undergraduate
is there an oven that's big enough to fit your head in?

now what to do
when careless indiscretions left a bruise or two
you'll never hear the end of it
now think this through
when mother's little martyr gets the best of you
remember his inheritance

oh cabbage cabbage
pride of the dead fish narcissists
for heaven's sake just wait until the blood has clotted

heel and toe
dance inconsolably slow
you've done it now
you've felt your hair fall out
lord knows we all know what's under your clothes
from bitterness to dermatitis

what to do oh inconsolable you
you've gone and kissed your gift horse on the mouth
oh poor cow
sweetheart we are what we are
aghast, a gash, an earmarked bell jar

    I also have trouble hearing what comes before "dermatitis", but I think I hear "hungered" at the beginning of it. Not sure though.
