“Lost Girls” lyrics:
Even though red is not your color
i’ll dress you in feathers
and fly you in the windy weather
like a child bird marooned
on an island of cats
little dewy brawling cats
with cross-eyed and hats
they take mercy on you
take you for walks
the mercy choir singing dismal dims
watery bible rhymes
all jumbled a mess
a mess of bright graves
flowers and balloonsstick out your thumb
and lift up your skirt
someone’s bound to stop here soon
take down your hair
and wind up your grin
someone’s gonna take you home

with a knapsack of trinket
I’m off to seek my fortune again
chasing ghosts of dead orphans
friends, cousin or kin
we wave to the passer by
moth wings of a butterfly
endless tracks where no car pass
close your eyes and you can fly
I’m off to meet my soul mate
a naked fawny jail bate
wading into ponds
filly with polly wigs at dawn
mourning the light
that slipped from my eyes
a little child with dirty nails
and dirty hair
i hard dirty things scrawled upon my mind
