She likes Lana del Ray by Melanie Browne

I don’t often
like loud music,
I let her turn it up
loud as she wants.
Lana sings about
bad men & bad relationships-
casinos, gas stations,
pawn shops,
Indian reservations,
red lipstick,
movie roles,
my hand always
drifts toward the
volume button
but Lana brings her joy,
so I mentally slap
my hand away,
she like Lana Del Ray
