line one, fifteen – seventeen are from phoebe bridgers – ‘moon song’


like a dog with a bird at your door

i’ll color your white mat

with my muddy paws


i dug you a garden yesterday

so my bones can lie beside

the feet of your roses.


i’ll wait to be let in

you haven’t yet built a dog door.


i stand on my hind legs

to see you happy at home

your fur coat is hung neatly

and my hair on your couches

is all vacuumed up


one day you did open the door

but when you saw the little bird

you started crying.


but you know the killer doesn’t understand

you know the killer just wanted more than a friend.


– ammarah siddiqui x phoebe bridgers
