Random Poem:

Appetite Suppressant

Vile viola wills her villainous wiles        
into the wintery waste of her wishes        
that need to be dishes served later        
with the Men who Knew her menu        
or thought they did.    
Her appetizers dazzled the palette        
without being palatable for general public    
So, sumptuous meals were served in dark spaces,        
marked cases of prawn COCKtail      
that spoiled too soon        
leaving Viola to recoil;        
Soiled by his maleness,        
like stale piss        
where the shame lingers in fermented odours    
and cemented no worse than the words that      
reverberated and permeated her soul:        
“I like to sample your menu,        
but I eat at home with my girlfriend”.        
No six course meal here,        
only a sick, course feel that dick once taut,        
taught me more than I wanted to feel.
