i'll leave you alone if you say go
but if you want me here
i'll tend to all the turtles
and let them eat me slow till you come back
as soon as they get to my kidneys call them off
think they've had enough for now
they can wait a minute for the rest of all our locked up limbs
i'm a trophy wife to a slow goodbye that doesn't conclude
when you wrap me tight till i'm calcified then i couldn't move
if i wanted to
i'll leave you alone though i'd like to be devoured next to you
we'd shrink with every bite
and as the turtles fill themselves we're set
i'm tired of living guilty and picking at the lack alone in a loop
and you're tired too
i thought maybe you could sleep in a bit
for once in your life, fool
