i'm not christian slater

by Lauren Singer

you have never been
nor will you ever be
Christian Slater.

(we could just let it happen...)

Christian Slater never has
nor will he ever be
Jack Nicholson.

(we could just let it happen...)

it gives me hope
that maybe i
could one day
be Christian Slater.

(the senses deceive
because people say
'what?')

we could just let it happen...

carpets aren't supposed to move and
YOU
are a bad-ass motherfucker.

(the senses
deceive
but we could just let it happen...)

I am not Christian Slater.

(therefore michael nash
can have a cigarette.)

our senses deceive
because people say
'what?'

(we could just let our senses happen.)

do you know why you cry at night?
(because you can't escape yourself...)

we could just let it happen.
