Hospital Sheets

from by Kitchen Sink



Written on the 7 train around 3 or 4 in the morning. Very very loosely inspired by The Bell Jar.


Lay me lightly on a stretcher
Forget to strap my limbs in
Let them swing let them sway
I'm pressed I'm pure like a hospital sheet

Fold me like origami
Press your fingers along my crease
Reach the corners and freeze
i'm pressed I'm pure like a hospital sheet

Let some air in the ambulance
Don't let the angels in
Don't my father in if you can find him
One in a million chance
Black blood dripping down your bare legs
I want to be a white screen
With no movies projected on me
I want to be a blank slate
That makes people think oh god what is she thinking
I want to pretend
That no one is me
I'm not a bird
I'm not a bee
There is no story
I'm pressed
I'm pure
Like a hospital sheet
