Bad Poetry Friday

Skeleton Girl c. 1997

Skeleton girl by the pay phone

who calls you?

Is it your stung out lover?

Is it your mother?

It’s not like you’ll go very far

except in the backseat of a car

Skeleton girl by the pay phone

The call’s for you.

 

Notes:

This sounds like I ripped off a Lisa Loeb song.

  1. Hello! I hope this is ok: I am an English teacher, and a creative writing teacher, to boot. These bad poetry Fridays are wonderful, and I hope you find it ok if I use them for class. Please let me know if you think it’s beyond me to do so. Thanks!
