Poetry Monday: Castrate the Rapists

Explicit Content Warning

Once,
A group rallied
To make rape
Legal.
I was angry – 
That night at work,
A female coworker
Said some guy
Said weird things
Then got her a drink;
A soda.
It tasted weird.
She didn’t feel well.
We kicked him out.
I have zero
Tolerance for
Rapists.
I’d rather
Have my dick
Cut off
Than force
Myself
Onto someone – 
I just want
To be loved

Poetry Monday: Han and Sage

An interesting pair they were
The saguaro cactus and the Gila monster
An odd couple like no other
But they met every week at the Tarantula Tavern
The saguaro’s name was Sage
She was bubbly and friendly
And gave everyone hugs
The monster’s name was Han
The quiet type and he sat
With his back to the wall
Han spoke to no one
As he waited with a drink
But would come animated and alive
In conversations with Sage
She was friendly and affectionate
Han hated everything
The pair would talk for hours
And despite his grumpy appearance
Han enjoyed his time with Sage
At the Tarantula Tavern in Tucson

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
