I Was Exiled By Your Prettiness

she was a temp
at a society
for the control of
all the invisible ones

she had the 80s
invested in her bones
but there was a problem
and she had to set it aside

now that it’s gone
you can say do it again
it was fun and
it always looked good on you

the body it’s strong
and the society keeps holding on
music is free and
there’s always more to come

But when she looked closely
she realized it was too cute
she was paralyzed by
all its smooth corners

she liked it rough
to get thrown around
make a bunch of noise
at least for a little while

she was a temp
at a society
for the control of
all the invisible ones

she had the 80s
invested in her bones
but there was a problem
and she had to set it aside


---

Then it came back
it reared its head
first in the movies and
then in sound

The colors were all amped
they had been saturated
all the nasty
had been scrubbed out

She went back
to the society
but the doors were wide open
and anyone could join

There was no secret
club to belong to
The doors were wide open and
anyone could join!


---

she was talented
at sniffing out secrets
that were hidden
in plain sight

so she went inside
and found them operators
and saw it was she
who’d been controlled

now that it’s gone
you can say do it again
it was fun and
it always looked good on you

the body it’s strong
and the society keeps holding on
music is free and
there’s always more to come
