Me and Carmen

from by Christine Fellows



my best friend, her name is Carmen,
she likes me more than all those
dirty rotten bastard kids
ever did

me and Carmen, we don’t need ‘em,
together we go arm in arm
wherever we go,
me and Carmen

every morning on the way to school
they torment us and call us names (they’re mean
and rude), but me and Carmen,
we will show them

all night we are as free as owls
flying high above the trees and houses,
hunting mice and squirrels,

when we’re twenty-three, me and Carmen,
we’ll live in houses side by each with one big garden,
and no one else,
just me and Carmen

there’ll be no one else, just me and Carmen
and the squirrels and the mice,
and the houses and the garden,
the trees and the other owls,

but no one else,
just me and Carmen
