barflypoet & author of dark fiction

 

‘he might work in mysterious ways’

 

dug deep

into the metal

of the urinal partition

the message

jesus will save you.

honestly, if he hasn’t already

i doubt he ever will

especially while shaking

piss from the tip of my cock.

‘half full’

 

i have so many words for you;

i just don’t have the heart.

‘11’s’

 

i see 11’s

all day, all night

a cosmic signal

of what i’ve no clue

 

a comfort to think

i may have someone

something

on my side.

 

a little support

from the unknown

is infinitely better

than the known

 

leaving you to hang

time and time again.

‘honesty of the situation’

 

you laugh wildly

i never air my dirty laundry

 

even as you push the next guy

from your sheets

 

i’d never call you a whore

mind you

 

but your casual bed making

is a bit offsetting

 

to each their own

you declare sternly

 

as you steal from under my nose

 

i’d never call you a thief

mind you

 

but your casual sticky fingers

are a bit fucked up.
