Murderers dance to happy songs
And you wheel the bin
Up and down the driveway
.
All the movie tickets are fading on the wall
.
But not this one
Why doesn’t this one bubble and warp?
I remember the events attached to this one
.
These tickets are dead animals, prizes,
Maybe
.
Will my mind rot like the tickets?
Eternal sunshine on the spotless mind
If I had it erased
I’d just repeat everything again
That’s what they say
.
I’d rather think that my amazing bad luck would drive the knife
.
Falling out
.
Near the tickets
.
Chickens and ducks in the cupboard
.
Never remembered those
I remember not remembering
.
I’m looking at the river
But I’m thinking of the sea
.
Buy the movie ticket to this life
It’ll bubble and fade and you’ll forget you saw it
.
Just take it out on DVD
Watch it on fast-forward
