Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, Starring Lindsay Lohan
Even her eyes slurred, Lindsay plays her
caught under the table searching
for her nicotine gum, smelling of flowers
so hunters can’t track her by scent.
She is selling everything she has stolen,
tables of goods tossed in an anger collage:
tobacco-scarred curtains, the gold medal
for correctly identifying a feeling,
Amazon dress shoes on the shelf of hill.
She is selling her No, a necessary tool.
A few drugs. Every object reminding her
of the person she burnt for warmth:
In the movie there’ll be simulated gunfire.
Love me. Included in our activity will be
law enforcement, emergency response vehicles,
and actors dressed as law enforcement.
Love me. How difficult it can be for anyone
to understand her or her motives,
but darkness can do nothing but kill her.
Paraded in handcuffs and an inflamed hat,
fettered by the head she holds up,
this is a happy ending; it is good to see
that all is not lost, just most things,
six million bonfires still raging the sky.
