online poetry workshop



then you start paying an ex-girlfriend for blow-jobs
unknown

started as a half-joke
 1
over texts:
 2
 
 
"obviously
 3
i'm using you -
 4
we've established
 5
that redundancy
 6
over the last year -
 7
it only seems fair."
 8
 
 
plus she's struggling to make it
 9
with a kid
 10
and getting her cna.
 11
 
 
only reason she agreed
 12
is because
 13
she still thinks someday
 14
she's going to suck my heart out of there
 15
instead of another
 16
mouthful of jizz.
 17
 
 
i know better
 18
 
 
tell her so repeatedly
 19
 
 
bluntly.
 20
 
 
but when you
 21
enter a woman's heart
 22
through the front door
 23
you can drive her
 24
off a cliff
 25
if you choose to do so.
 26
 
 
standing in line
 27
to buy a newspaper
 28
i contemplate
 29
this new
 30
personal nadir.
 31
 
 
cash back?
 32
asks the clerk
 33
as i hand her
 34
my debit card.
 35
 
 
twenty dollars
 36
 
 
please.

LOVE this... can relate with the sentiments given here.
I would only say, use proper CAPitalization where needed (you aren't ee cummings, after all) and don't start a sentence with 'but' (line 21).  Great job!

What ends up on the top-sellers list in this piss palace -- never amazes me.
Not that it isn't well written with the whole jizz line and the heart off the cliff thing.

But bOi dontcha know that last line bout the $20 back was just Killer!
