Greasy red lipstick tastes of candle wax
Mascara runs down my cheeks like black teardrops
When I cry

Never missing a wake or funeral
A burial is irresistible
As I am notoriously lugubrious

To hold up the head in both hands
And to kiss it upon the lips
Taking cold pebbles in my mouth as I am buried too
