I listened to Britney Spears today The album before the breast implants,
The Constant pleas of “Baby”
Made me want to kill myself But I found myself drawn in
Singing the words
Dancing slightly in my chair Dammit.
Anne Lombardo Ardolino
My name is Anne Lombardo Ardolino and I live in the East Village of New York City, which is also known as the “Lower East Side” (of Greenwich Village).
I’m a songwriter (lyrics and music), poet, short story writer and a half assed painter Most of my paintings are very small; that way, when I make a mistake, it’s a little one.
I’m too old to rock n roll and too young to die

A Cold Freezing Winter’s Day
If I took my children
and I tossed them into the fridge
they’d throw my ass in jail
WHAT have you got
to say about THAT
