THE ODD FRENCH VOWEL

by

Charlton Metcalf



cherry brat urban curls
sunroof mix, stereo ten
sub-woofer warped,
singing along with the odd French vowel
all smiles,
the complete death of cool
Rollin',
motor breeze, ms. kisser home crowns
hitting traffic
hip pocket $300 Bjork radio city tix
downtown thrill me messin'
first corner, cracked window "shake it baby",
to the curfew boys,
super shy in your eye,
panty waste crooners for American booty,
irresistibly convenient, with toothpaste commercial smiles
velvet rope taunts,
teaser chill bitch,
do the dramatic
fashionista DJ muggin'
yelling so loud it hurts
wasabi fire,
comically spangly spinna moocha
out the top,
flashing plumps freshman firm titties,
full blooded style,
at the street pizza hecklers with neck tats and traffic court crushes,
stylin' like sniffer dogs
endow orbital,
cum-punk hassless flirts,
taking the big sucker punch fight club pose
all quite silly
fly-over glances,
at a social sidekick's lack of control
Hells Bellas, sista girlie
politik pink, queer theory piņata
ready for front row,
bisexual ten minute kisses in acrylic and rubber goodness,
with sweet-ass tongue stud flavor plastic gangstas,
nicein' up the dance ta stomphunk Bedouin beats,
and the suburban urchin rhythms of accidental sex
