Solar Plexus, Suddenly Sodden

from ICS 2012​.​10​.​28 by Amy Denio / Spoot Music



Inspired by stories from my elder sister Anne. She randomly punched her little sister Kitty in the solar plexus, thus knocking her out and thinking she'd accidentally killed her. Another time, she and Kitty decided to make a swimming pool upstairs, while our parents were having a party downstairs, to disastrous effect. Recently Anne discovered she has a hole in her brain. She's been living with it probably her whole life.


Little girl with her littler sister
perched on the counter top in the kitchen
spontaneous moment, fist was forming
and flying through the air
With all her force and her unexpected power,
the elder punched the younger in the solar plexus
way back in time
we ain't no T. Rex, us
Didn't know she was really deftly dextrous
knock her sister down and out
fainting on the counter top
elder holding so she won't drop

I'm a solar plexus puncher of my sister's
whose eyes are crossing shut
I didn't mean to kill her like that
Maybe she'll come up, after my upper cut.

Little girl with her littler sister
Out of sight, out of mind at their parents' party
Left to their own devices they made a swimming pool upstairs
They went back and forth, spilling buckets and buckets of water
But the swimming pool never filled, and the guests downstairs wondered why they were
Suddenly sodden

I'm just a girl who has a hole inside her brain
Really quite sensible, sensitive and sane
It's gotta be some evil twin taking my reigns
Who'd have thunk I'd have started life this way.
