HEY, COOL GIRL!

E. KRISTIN ANDERSON

 

Mess it up even more,

    never get tired:

      Let a crown

        hold, then split.

 

Never get tired—

summer’s last parties

hold,

    then split

with your hands.

 

Summer’s last parties

    dampen.

  With your hands,

spin it away.

 

      Dampen.

 

    Let a crown

spin it away.

Mess it up even more.
