Two Poems


Fake every punt / Taint misbehaving

I just duct-taped my asshole shut

you look so hot just screwing around

with your phone all the time

I am rubbing Wallace Stevens’ poems all over my body

I imagine you in footie pajamas putting

chapbooks together

I’ll be under my desk waiting for the sex to begin

It’s OK to do that thumb and pinky bottle

thing whenever I walk by

I’m not sure there is a Heaven

but there’s definitely a Hell

I’m skipping Movember and going right

to Pubecember

I just want to drink weird regional sodas

and fall in love with people on the internet.

Don’t judge me. Unless it’s like sexy judgmental

The Best Way to Currently Help

in New York

1. Get the Fuck Out of My Way

2. Shut the Fuck Up

“I shoulda known it was a one-horse town”

I need a first responder in my underpants

I’m just waiting for the volcano to erupt

I’m gonna displace some emotions your way

If this was a facebook post, would you “like” it?

I’d like to add you to my professional network

Come all Ye Horny

Leave an open beer on my grave

Hannah Weiner saw words, I just see tacos

Failed to come to assistance to pigeon in distress

Aquarius, you may have to learn how to choke people

out with your head phone cords today

I had such hopes for google plus

A source of unavoidable intensity

“Like you’ve never seen a dick before”

“And make Panther fans forget all about you?

And become your mom’s favorite player?”

Someone check scripture

Just another double shift at the douche factory

I want a channel that’s just

riots at Walmarts in HD

“Somebody gotta be the victim tonight”

Aquarius, it’s time to call a lawyer
