lyrics

why'd you kill me?
my body was perfect
free of all defects
i latched on to you

what's my job here?
i hatched from a pearl
carried up from a draft
onto your
windowsill

what's the deal here?
you were my blood meal
a lukewarm human
moving thru the house

and why'd you stop me?
i could've made hundreds
no i could've made thousands
no i could've made millions

why'd you drown me?
light a tiny buoyant candle
let it float in the bathtub
my family here with me

what's the point of
looking back at some things?
i was born on a tuesday and
i died the next week

full of blood
i stuck to your fingers
when you think of this small death i hope
you're afraid to speak

and i loved you my one and only blood meal
i hid in your leg hairs
and you disappointed me
