My house, my house, still cleaning my house
Your smell is still in my room
My God, you didn't bother using the trash can
Now I'm sweeping it up with a broom

Right now I'll bet you fill your face
With someone else's gross disgrace
No matter how much Lysol I spray
I can't get your crumbs to blow away

Cleaning your love slime, dusting the cold grime
Nothing left of you but your love slime
Scraping your skin bits down with disinfectant
Picking up your lust lint with your love slime

Myself, myself, still scrubbing myself
Can't get rid of this feel
I'm flaking raw red and wishing that your
Love slime weren't so real

I'll bet you've already forgot
another notch upon your cot
Cleaning kitchen can't relieve
the creepy stuff you left for me

Scrubbing your sex dirt, all of this from one flirt?
If there's a punishment it's your love slime
Folding your scum sheets and shredding your receipts
Were you wanting to leave me with your love slime?

You love slime monster, where have you been sleeping?
Turning your key in every door, sending the bugs a-creeping
I see it floating in the air, I taste it in me everywhere
I hear it whisper from afar, it's riding with me in my car
White hard, love lard, frying fat, crud cake
That's all that's left of the love you make

Come out, come out, this spot won't come out
No matter how hard I try
Pouring this box of detergent
All over your love slime

It never ceases to amaze
The ease with which your love betrays
You're like a snail, I always find
The dirty trail you leave behind

Cleaning your love slime, so far from the sublime
Were you showing to shock me with your love slime?
Hosing your hair down, but can't get rid of your sound
Want to mash the memory of your love slime

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
