Stephen Malkmus Gardenia

I kinda like the way you dot your J's
with giant circles of naivete
the kind of circles include everything
don't mean to damn you with the faintest praise
it's just a symptom of the blithe age
If Walt were living (?) he would be amazed
so you got some curb appeal
but can you cook a 3 course meal
or are you just a present waiting to be opened up and parceled out again hey
well you are a gardenia
pressed in the campaign journal
in the rucksack of an afrikaaner candidate for mild reform
it's like we're at a ponzi scaminar
there's no escaping without a door prize
they're operating at significant loss
and now the way you watch your weight
richard avedon
richard avedon would
richard avedon would surely approve
so much for your curb apeal
and so much for the 3 course meals
cause i am not a present waiting to be opened up and parceled out again
well the torture of the
Van Wyck expressway at 5 pm on friday gives you some idea of how rejection makes me feel
well you are a gardenia
well you are a gardenia
