January 22, 2021 || Skid Row

Living on Skid Row and fruit snacks

Dreaming of diamond teeth

With the power to bite back

At all the bullshit they feed

From the hands of people

Who only pretend to understand

What it’s like to live in a tent on the street

Who never even tried to handle the heat

Running away from dirty faces

To cool off in Lamborghini A/C

Going live on Instagram to take

That shameless charity selfie

Getting that publicity so they don’t

Feel guilty that every Birkin rotting

Away in their closet is worth more than

The rough 80 percent will ever see.
