Escandalosa

The postcard says:

"estuve en Mijas y

pensaba en ti"



I bewitch you like candy

a bad trip

with

lips

hips

I say I love you but it's only a trick

my eyes

tell more lies than those ugly cartoon valentines



I'm escandalosa, nobody's mariposa

My dancing heels laugh

because you pick me the thorny rosa.

Ay!Ay!Ay!

Why did you pick me, the thorny rosa?
