burton: voodoo girl

Her skin is white cloth,
and she's all sewn apart
and she has many colored pins
sticking out of her heart.

She has a beautiful set
of hypno-disk eyes,
the ones that she uses
to hypnotize guys.

She has many different zombies
who are deeply in her trance.
She even has a zombie
who was originally from France.

But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
to close to her,

the pins stick farther in.

Voodoo Girl
by Tim Burton
from The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories
(Rob Weisbach Books, 1997)

And don't forget the merch.
