The Aftertaste of Soap

Part 1
Yours was the first name on the list of credits
Dancing in the train graveyard, celebrating
Your liberated lonely knuckles, discovering
The intimacy between the lines of paper

The ink that only dries in your last days

You drank so much the baby came disfigured,
But it was still your favourite prop
Donning the most expensive burka
And a crossword wedged between its thighs
You’re an adult now

Part 2

Your neighbours, they
Gagged and vomited, but
The sunshine, he
Knew your name that day, and
I almost want to smile
(repeat Part 2)

Part 3

The moans of rusted machinery
Reminding you of your grandparents house
Where every meal lingered from the aftertaste of soap
But was prepared by a love only wheelchairs could manipulate

Part 4
(repeat first half of Part 1)

Part 5

Sweetheart,
You cannot be
So persistent

(and just) Please get out,
You come across
Too interested
(repeat)

Breathe out,
