Bone Girl approaches the counter at Macy's,
But she's gone way beyond dry skin.
She clanks against the glass display case, scattering jittery clerks, who immediately throw away their diet pills.
Bone Girl goes to the dentist and sits in the chair.
The dentist starts to say "open" but falters, realizing this is not necessary. No gum disease here!
Bone Girl sits alone in a cafe.
She wants to stuff herself, but anything she eats just goes right through her.
Har de har.
Bone Girl was once as plump and rosy as a German beer hall waitress,
Then the rats began to gnaw.
The you are not attractive if you are not skinny rat.
The your life is over if you are not young rat.
The can you do this for me rat.
The I'm leaving you for someone else rat.
The oh shit, wtf happened to my life rat.
Bone Girl has lost her figure.
She injures her lovers simply by embracing them,
They tend to be creepy anymore, anyway.
Bone Girl has lost all her softness
And the sparkle in her eyes.
Bone Girl's hair has gone all to hell, thin and wispy.
She has a speech impediment.
It is Springtime.
Bone Girl picks a flower and goes to place it behind her ear, as if she were a flamenco dancer,
But of course it only falls.
God in His mercy
Has made her deaf as a stone,
And so she cannot hear it fall;
Cannot hear the happy children laugh
When they steal it.
