Kush Co. & Willow Trees

 

oh they don’t know how I lick these leaves
these leaves on willow trees
I’m blowin holes outta the smoke these trees
they’re made to tease
that’s why im an Islamic convert just tryna please
these calla lilies
someone stitched my eyes cross-eyed
someone askin how’d your skin get so white
truth is, this is me sun burnt, this is skin cancer when
it’s livin off microwave meals and cunnilingus
I went to the park hopin I’d be more clean
the natural whites of my nails seem to say Im mean
like girls who’ve got French manicures
this new guy with the johnny depp bravado
studded with goatee fresher than james franco
hottest thing I’ve seen to date, I would date,
he is not my mate
he looks like ibuprofen when it’s hot pink and brilliant
the pills you wanna take to stop feeling the kicks
from your period
oh they don’t know how I lick these leaves
these pills are better than me, how I’d stain a square tab on my tongue, tattoo on me
on judgement day they’d say
swallow me.
