N.B. “Because you’re your problem Annie, and you’re also your solution.”
You put the glow to your lips,
Here’s looking at you, (kid),
Putting that sun to your face
And being your own solution for once.
You remember when you hated the light?
I remember that shit well. That darkness.
I remember it transcending, curling, kissing.
It has to touch you when you’re on the tube,
Or closed off in some bus somewhere.
You’re sweeter. You’re happier.
Well done for being yourself,
Well done for coming out of your shell,
Well done for saying goodbye to people who don’t love you
Well done for solving your own equations, you.
