Random Poem:

Understanding Orin 101

I want you sad,
preferably in leather
my lost lips
tracing the corners
of your dark,
dirty mouth.
I want you just the way you are-
zoned out on Klonopin,
at war with yourself
and the rest of the world
my frozen fingers finding warmth
in the deliberate depths
of your punk-ass pockets.
