The Future is Female

saw a little girl today
she looked eerily happy
dragging a headless doll
from behind her on a string

as its tattered body
skipped and scraped
across the rough
concrete sidewalk
I got lost in a memory
and couldn’t help
but feel its pain

she faded from view
and I lit a cigarette
thinking to myself

“Go get ’em, kid . . .
burn the fucking world down.”
