Random Poem:

beautiful abomination (san fransisco, 2005)
KatinaChoo

so we boarded a train,
 1
you and i,
 2
at 9 o'clock on a sunday.
 3
 
 
you, in your french jeans
 4
smoking your french cigarettes
 5
me, in my eskimo boots
 6
listening to showtunes.
 7
 
 
we were told
 8
we were told that we should be accepted
 9
for our abomination
 10
we should be proud of our
 11
differences
 12
if only for a week in june
 13
set aside for people like us
 14
 
 
so we boarded a train,
 15
you and i,
 16
and flew away from home
 17
as fast as twenty tons of steel
 18
could carry us
 19
