i told her
i have
three kids
with
four women

she oh yeah’d
and looked closer
at my jacket

the backspace key
all my idea
i yawned

she told me
i, like, totally
had to follow her
on twitter

i yawned
again

she asked me
if i liked
piercings

i told her
no holes
on women
should be strictly
ornamental

she looked at
the clock
and at me
and at the clock
again

do you want to take me home
she offered more than asked

i do
i said
because
well
i did
but i’m not
going to

she was
genuinely
confused
look at me

i did
i had been
all night

take me home
and fuck me
she fumed

thanks
but no

why not

what if she calls

what if she doesn’t

what if she shows up
late
and i smell like you

fuck me
in the shower
