i think it’s time we all admit that i’m a pretty serious poet

there’s a scar
on my hand
and i’m still
not sure
where it came from
i wish
i had a fun story
i punched mengele
he’s been dead
for thirty years
mengele’s grandkid
he’s not a nazi
but he listens
to insufferable
german techo music
there’s a scar on my leg
but i know
where it came from
simple fencing accident
putting one up
with an epee
you know
before sex
i think
i’m going to start
en garde!
though that
may lead
to even
more scars
