I’ve never once been afraid of love
Little pink valentines cut out in the classroom
What manufactured model boy will I receive in the future?
There are no other options
A dash of pink here, a dash of blue there
A dash of purple everywhere
Does this look like Antarctica to you?
Take your penguins somewhere else
Heads resting in laps
Wondering if they’ll live to live out the sunset together
Riding into the distance in shiny white newlywed cars
Two painstakingly sewn dresses at the altar
So I’ll tangle a tie around my neck
And you can tie the knot for me
A final crescendo of ecstasy
And shoes slipped off and sent to the floor
