one night stand

sweet talk him to
tomorrow’s
breakfast table
but then i cry
i see him
casually
caressing
bodies that
killers
wouldn’t touch
today he eats me
with sugar and
philosophy
impacting my
beauty
forbidden
is no longer
in my
vocabulary

alone again

i have 72 hour one night stands
just enough for me to get attached
a goodbye then i’m wrapped
in the blanket of lies
lying languidly on the couch
the sound of children playing
beneath my balcony makes me
want a whiskey with my cigarette
and wonder why i didn’t
pay more attention in my
sophomore science class
i have to come to terms with
being bored and lonely
and to stop wishing on stars
and trucks carrying bales of hay
