Lit Ones

by nyssa96

girls with buzz cuts singing along to beach house

the air thick with eccentricity and anarchy

their painted nails beginning to chip slowly

like the minds of the older folks that are too engrossed with their holy books

smart mouths and their pretentious words

they make you want to kneel and pray

but you know other things that you would rather be doing with your hands

like reaching for your dreams

or punching some guy's face for telling you to smile, pretty lady

and boys with long locks crying to armageddon

the blue sea spilling out from their red eyes their shirts splattered with distress and confusion

mostly from people who are built like big boulders and war tanks too upset to see one of them crying

but you know other things that you would rather be doing with your anatomy

like building homes with pretty gardens

or sewing a dainty dress for your niece.
