Random Poem:

Selfish meet Stupid

You called. You needed an ego pump
and I'd been waiting to fill you up for ten years.
How convenient for you.
She doesn't fuck you.
So you called to mind fuck me until I couldn't talk.
You mind fuck much better than you actually screw.
Took awhile for me to catch on.
You spoonfed me all that bullshit that I only eat
when it's coming from you.
All the time you knew exactly what you were up to.
Pity I have a pothead's memory.
But I suppose that you do too.
Then you stopped. Suppose you got your fill
of the creeping dose I slipped to you.
Off to turn blue
you flew.
