The man who grabbed / my ass on the train / gasoline / the man could have passed / as Santa / calling
me honey / gasoline / the man who sunk / his fingers / inside of me / before I could push / him away /
gasoline / the man who tried to fuck me / with an empty beer bottle / when I was sixteen / gasoline / the
man / who called / me sweetheart / in a meeting / gasoline / I’m peeling / back my skin / revealing / the
flint of a match / crawling through my blood / my bones / I’m ready / to burn / this fucking frat party / of
America to the ground.
