i never lived on a cul-de-sac
 1
and baby
 2
you kept driving
 3
over sidewalk chalk, never stopped
 4
until i drew a line –a lie
 5
dripping from your silver smile,
 6
 
 
so silver
 7
slick and twisted and
 8
just my afternoon curly fry
 9
 
 
stirring my lips,
 10
my sort of wit/wet ending in parentheses
 11
(i won't say fuck you, i won't say it)
 12
 
 
 
 
can we love like real people?
 13
like the neighbors next door
 14
who wash their cars together
 15
and eat enchiladas at six, at a table
 16
with more than two chairs
 17
 
 
who bend over
 18
and work each other
 19
in a king size bed – stop screwing my head
 20
(i won't suck you, anywhere, ever)
 21
 
 
 
 
i never want to see us
 22
in the middle of a mall
 23
holding abercrombie and fitch bags
 24
thinking of getting a soft pretzel
 25
 
 
and there's a hard look in your eye
 26
that pushes me away from
 27
the emergency exit
 28
 
 
i love leaving, love following the arrows
 29
not following you
 30
slipping between a fence
 31
breathing like there's a gun in my hand
 32
 
 
you keep on driving
 33
don't watch me try to wave
 34
some friendly, i almost loved you wave
 35
 
 
almost crept into your room
 36
and licked you
 37
kind of wave
 38

This is your first potty mouth poem eh?
 — unknown

18-21 is egads, but this is supposed to be read as if i am talking to the person who always talks like this about our friendship. i hope that's clear. :-/
 — mandolyn

Its more of a Port-O-Potty mouth seeing as you deleted most of the potty. Dont do bad language, it doesn't fit you. =)
