Liner Notes – (from Love Is A Dog From Hell)

My friend Jenny is really
worried that people are going to follow me around and send me dead animal
parts and doll heads as a result of this song but please, if you feel inclined
to send me dead animal parts, think it through. Thanks.

Stalk me
I once wrote a poem called FUCK ME
So stalk me
I’m asking for it
Don’t take your medication
Stalk ME

Write to me and say Dear Maggie I love what you do
You’ve got a really big mouth
Actually your mouth is a little too big
Anyone ever tell you what a big-mouthed bitch you are
God, you know I’m kinda sick of you
I mean, what’s so great about you
How come you got on TV
I could do that
You ain’t shit
You suck
I hate you
but I love you
I love you because I hate you
Can I have your children?
Will you shack up with me?

Oh sure
I’ll shack up with you
I love stalkers
Especially when they hate me
But you knew that
That’s why you stalk me
You’re not fooled by my clever ruse
Bitch goddess? I think not
I’m just a sucker for punishment
So punish me
Spank me
Dominate my sock drawer
And stalk me

Don’t stalk Jodie Foster, David Letterman or John S. Hall
Don’t go through their trash
Their trash is boring
play with my trash
Hurry, I’m waiting
I’m pleading
Just come on and do it
Chew me choke me and stalk me
That’ll teach me to write all that goddamned poetry

  1. Shena says:

    There aren’t many raw, funny, and lively poems out there, but this Poem “Stalk Me” is one the small few. This Poet brings the intense, dramatic feeling, with a humorous twist that her audience enjoys. In this poem, the poet is talking about her success and how there is a down fall to it. However she takes her fears in some ways and turns it to sarcasm. She tells her stalker to come out and reveal him or her and do the unthinkable in her case. It showcases her braveness and confidence, not caring what other people think about her. Maggie Estep leads her “stalker” in this in a seductive and hypnotizing way that makes this poem electrifying
