Sugarfish

Spoiler

Lemme stick to something sweet

sugar on my hand and feet
Sugarfish San Vicente
sugar sugar in my teeth
from your kiss you texting me
from the movie theatre seat
Dodger Stadium Slurpee
white confection in the sea
powder waves froth over me
A fortune teller once told me
do things that you think are sweet and a
sweet man is sure to follow.

So I made a bath that night of honey
dippes my toes in rose and money
stayed all night in that bathwater
even some I swallowed.

Now there's so much sugar on me
I can't keep the bees off of me
even more of my thoughts are charming
some are blue and borrowed

Sugar sugar lips and teeth
fingertips touch emojis
hard forever
hearts on fleek
bb please come over

This poem is so cute! I think it’s a nice breather between some of the heavier poems on Violet. And I love the synergy between it and Cinnamon Girl :flutter:

Yes! I’m hoping for some more lyrical parallels on Chemtrails and Behind the Iron Gates!

Oh I’m sure they will be!! In that infamous QFTC post she mentioned that she was talking about how she was feeling now, in both the album and poetry book!

 

I can’t wait to see the connection!! I’ve been connecting Violet and NFR, every time I reread a poem I try to connect the feelings and mood to a song! There’s some that click right away and others I either find one or two, or none!

ok so it does reference the sushi restaurant lol it's cute tbh! To me Violet Bent Backwards is an extremely Los Angeles heavy work. I wonder if Behind the Iron gates will correlate more to the midwestern experience

 

I’m sure it will be! Since she’s talking about documenting her thoughts in both book and album, we already know the Midwest really got to her music wise, it’s only safe to assume Iron is also going to touch on that!

Yes I think I was the person who told you it didn't, but I no idea that Sugarfish was a restaurant, ahahaha. Sorry. I thought it was just a word she made up.

I'm guessing this is probably about Chase as there were photos and videos of them at the Dodgers stadium. In fact, much of the book seems to be about a relationship that's very on/off and that she's unsure about, which really fits because they took some very obvious breaks throughout.

Also, I feel like this:

Quote

is a way of saying that she was thinking about marrying him (whoever "he" was).

Also someone in my Discord pointed out that it makes more sense if it's rosé and she probably just didn't have the e with the acute on her typewriter.

this is actually really interesting because I notice some beat poetry influences in her work and I’ve always for whatever reason associated beat with NY/NYC, but then I read some of it and know it’s got midwestern stories and experiences behind it. but at the same time, beat was in California as well as NY so idk but i just found it interesting
