« Back to issue 14

after several messages
left in your
voice mail
no reply back

but I bet
you’re
using that
damn cell phone

that contraption
that always
interrupted our
tinny beer toasts

that contraction
that made you
pull out
during our
wayside bend
that contraction with it’s
annoying puff daddy
or diddy
or what ever the hell
his name is
ring tone

answering to the snowman
making you say,
"gotta go babe
see ya maana!"

but frosty
always
melts when your
season runs dry

then it’s back to me
for the umpteenth time
filthy
no denero
running from
the blue heelers
all sucked up
expecting me to
suck down

you always say you’re done-
clean
as the bleach
you used
on your pin pricks and
strait
as the line
that led to your honker

"I want you!"
"I want you!"
"I want you!"
you exclaim

rested
fed
shave
shit
and
shower
then it’s back
out
you go
no word
for months

but you don’t care
to care would mean
you’d have to feel
and to feel would mean
you’d have to remember

"I’m never doing this again!"
I say
and then
my candy ass
does it
again
and
again
and
again
