I watch these thin-hoofed beasts

the ridiculousness of this
seige is that I don’t want
this city and you don’t
want to take it.

so dance with your men
before the yellow juke box
in the dark bar.

I think what’s wrong here–
especially for you–
is the lack of something
else to do.

me, I watch these thin-hoofed
jump out of the gate
almost daily.
with this I acquire a tan
and a minor aplomb.

it’s my stability vs. your

you go out and get

while I start looking around
for a woman
who might love a man
for something else
besides his tongue and
his cock
three times a week.
