those girls

Amelia is easily enraged and
often ugly. MaryAnn
is omnipresent and annoyingly
persistent. and you’re definitely
better off without
Laura’s lovesick laments.

I, too, am quick to outrage
and get ugly often
so I feel you, Amelia.
I, too, am lovesick
and want more
than what’s on offer,
so I feel you MaryAnn
and Laura.

those girls you sing about
feel so very familiar
under their various aliases.
in fact, they seem like
pretty cool chicks,
if their only real crime
is liking you.
you should introduce me
sometime. unless perhaps I
already know them, maybe even
as well as I know myself.
