barflypoet & author of dark fiction


first date
don’t be so coy
you know you’ve been blowing him out in the parking lot
leaving your half eaten panini beside me
leaving me sick in the mouth
how he stroked that fleshy thigh of yours
it’s none of my business, of course
but you’ve intruded all the same
with that yuppie glass of Pinot Grigio of yours
beside my sterile snifter of Scotch
tell me
don’t be so shy
did you let him cum in your mouth the first time out?
the residue of days old coleslaw beside me
leaving me sick on the tongue
stupid girl
he’ll only admire another next week
much like the half eaten panini beside me
you’ll grow cold and forgotten.

    Sounds like another Saturday night at the Shore. Awesome job not pulling any punches and just laying it all out there.

      Actually, it took place at a bar near my house a few years ago lol Thank you, Hunter, glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

    powerful emotion in your words of observing
    sometimes you just have to let someone stumble, if we told them what we see, they wouldn’t believe us anyhow …
    interesting poem, I have a few tucked away that are similar…
    not angry or spiteful, just observing from the other side of the fence πŸ™‚
    Take Care…You Matter…

      Hi MaryRose πŸ™‚ I write a lot of observatory poetry, and I tend to shoot from the cuff while doing so. Thank you very much for reading! πŸ™‚

        being observant makes the best writings I think πŸ™‚

        I agree! One should always write with open eyes πŸ˜€
