Enfant de Boheme

another mask-
that's all they want
another pretty little tattooed love thing
another burlesque queen
with flawless features
slip on a wig
become someone new
in stockings with back-seams
and pink-glitter-beaded-panties

I AM NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

i am a riot waiting to happen
scarred arms and hard hearts
freckled
and laced with the taste of venom
i am a disillusioned child of revolution
forgotten by fame and fate alike
i don't like your music
or your art
i don't strip-
i just naturally come this way
and no-
i won't wear your mask
