How deeply ingrained are your patterns?

How can nothing ever mean something?
It goes from white to grey so fast.
A new pool on a strange mattress
helps me catch up with my past.
Pass me something to wipe with;
we’re so easy to please.
Do you worry that it’s loaded?
Laced with a million little MEs…
So are you up for the hat-trick
or are you down for a rest?
Is the whitest light between our legs
or hidden in my chest?

And if they see us on the stairs
or if they catch us on the sink,
move quickly and brush it off
with a giggle and a wink.

At least we know we’re fuckable,
at least we’re sated and we’re tired.
At least the bedroom stinks
and we know we’re desired.
