She likes camping, has kids, furry pets.
I said I went to poetry readings.
She said, “What’s that?”
I said there’s one now at the UAG
let’s go. She said, “Sure, but
let’s fuck first then go drink beer.”
Yes. Fuck first. Yes. Beer.
She doesn’t want to hear my words
just wants to feel my cock inside her.
She wants to do what she wants to do
drink beer, fuck, go camping.
Poems are for pussies.

 

A Valentine

I went to your house
with a bouquet of flowers.
Your truck wasn’t in the driveway
so I broke in, put the flowers
on your table — sorry about
stepping on your cat. Is that
why you haven’t called to thank me?
