“House of Mirrors” by JR Knauf

House of Mirrors


I need someone who’s really
into me.
You say with a whine in your voice
I just look down at my hands
Grimace and roll my eyes

Looking for Ms. Goodbar
She made herself available
You did the same…Again
It was too easy
Blah Blah Blah

You had the proverbial
Target on your back
In Neon
Were date stamped

She’s a honey of a whore
A gun tote’n
Workin’ it hard
As the day is long
And the night is black

I became ripe cataracts
That she removed from
Your eyes
So you can see
How she’s really into you
