Juvenile Detention

i heard
at group
therapy those
German kids are really
messed up: their folks
couldn't wait to get
rid of them,
(found by the truant
cop 2
weeks later, both
loon-crazy and
chewing the plaster) when they
got to their
creepy
great aunt's they
found her dead,
head in the oven;
i guess she didn't want
them either

And what
about Cindy, tormenting that
poor little rich
boy, in her
too-short skirt
and
shiney lip
stick (she had to
kick off
those ridiculous heels) so's to
scamper off laughing
clinking and
clanking
with his parents' heavy
silver
ware

so don't ask me
why
i chopped my hair, ran
away,
pierced
my tongue;
yeah, i busted that
freaky
kid's highchair, with
the little plastic tray, open-
the-hangar-here -
comes-the-
aeroplane
dried-on rock-hard
gobbets
of oatmeal (the door was open, and i
was hungry;
slept behind
a dumpster 3
nights running, but
i didn't mean to
break it) i
just wanted
to see if i could
still
fit
