I buried a friend today

Poor thing, she went in a common sort of way

Such a pretty face, balanced on a bottle-neck

It makes you wonder why they’d bother

sewing it back on

Do you think she came clean in the bath?

Bernadette lost her head

for a drink and a cigarette

Now you can see,

what she missed, in the mirror that she kissed

in what was wiped clean

Do you remember that scene?

I remember it clearly

Do you think

she came clean in the sink,

holding her hair back

gulping the air back?

Do you think she

slipped out feeling sorry

for herself

and nobody else?

She should have been left with something to write with

or at least someone to die with

Did you see how they cut her hair off?

Oh, what does she care now?

Give us something to tear down
