Reading The Entrails

Bernie had a hole in his belly
as big as your head
for a minute
and Carole Anne
had the sweetest lips
the longest legs
and the driest thirst
for Cuervo
as she slipped
into darkness
like Bernie
forever
but slower

I’m gonna be
lonely as hell
today
horny as hell tonight

  1. Excellent! For just a moment your words were going to take me to a romantic spot in Mexico for a tequila and a dance but then you brought me back very quickly to earthy real life!
