Poetry Monday: Hookers

Explicit Content Warning

I paid a woman for sex
She wasn’t the first and wasn’t the last
A tiny thing, short, thin
100 pounds soaking wet
We started our fun; it was going well
I thought I was some master sex machine fiend
We moved through a few positions
Then she started sneezing
With each sneeze she pushed me out of her
It felt a little funny at the time
Nothing says get the hell away from me
Like a sneeze when you’re fucking

From the poetry collection Men Are Garbage.

You only have to sign up for my newsletter to be entered into the giveaway. Sign Up Here! The winner will be chosen and notified on April 15. No purchase necessary. You must reside in the United States. James Pack examines masculinity and anxiety in “Men Are Garbage,” a book of poetry in which he reflects on childhood trauma and his time as a nightclub bouncer.
