Telephone: Hysterical Reveries

You settled in your kitchen 

the one time we drank liquor,

furious that I was lost.

You yelled and wept and drank more.

I thought more fucking would help us.

When you quieted, we tried.

Your cunt on top of me said,

Yes, but the rest of you sour, No.

We fucked and fucked and fucked, stopped.

You stood up and I followed,

stopping, sticking my right foot

onto the sharp metal stop

of the old dial phone ringing.

On my left side

I dream I plan

To fuck old Gram

She’s into it

Softly shyly

Welcoming me

Into her cunt

For a long ride

Spelling her needs 

With consonants 

Her age appears

When she comes hard

Grabbing me with

Every muscle

Connected to

Her cunt and mouth

Goodbye she cries

And dies happy

And I die fine
