Radium Girl

She thinks she knows what’s good for her
A glow she can’t deny
And as she paints the time
Her youth runs dry

She’s a radium girl
White teeth, bright smile
Not one for wisdom’s pearls
All the while she lies

But this girl’s on time
Lead coffin fused
Jaw clenched, skin brined

For sale: a wristwatch,
never used.
