Smoking less like
she is more relaxing
I could breathe her in on my ten
hold her between two fingers
let her smolder a moment
on a celibate heart
Late last night ditched itself on my fingertips
her dawn gently furrowed in my beard
hidden in the hour I was late to work
One day, this will be my #office every day. (at mi casa)
You were a cum stain on my favourite black jeans, the matching puddle a shadow on a couch I sold to an overweight couple from a suburb called Beaverton. They had an eleven-year-old son who really liked the couch, and I felt like he could smell the leftover sex as he bounced on the damp cushions, pleading its purchase.
I sold that shame for forty bucks and helped pack it into a minivan, but I wore those jeans all summer, to tatters, like the holes in the pockets were mocking and mimicking me both at once, because I couldn’t hold anything in.
The first things that went were the back pockets. My keys kept poking out and I kept dropping my wallet when I bent over. That saying about “a hole in your pocket,” the one about money – was pretty literal.
On the other hand, all my money was alchemized to booze; I was baptized in it all summer long, and those jeans were my baptism gown.
