It slipped out I said it
I slipped up eruption in my head
Of a word gone wrong
A moment out of control
To forget, to dive into the floor
Escape. Hide. Disappear.
Oh but you know her
Oh really she’s your sister, you love her
Your mother, right, yes I’m a twat
I said it I meant it
It was a mistake and I knew it
You never know who you’re talking to
Think you do but you don’t
A conversational fullstop
Gaps. Pause. Silence.
Oh but you are her
Oh really for sure her, you have cancer
Your dying, right, yes I’m like that
