Random Poem:

I want your best friend.
Sodomize

In the darkness of your downstairs room
 1
we were listening
 2
to "green sleeves",
 3
and drinking wine.
 4
 
 
Oh, the wine
 5
had been very cheap
 6
and tasted like old cherry tomatoes,
 7
dirt and dust.
 8
 
 
Still we drank deep
 9
from our cracked, old cups
 10
and from one another.
 11
 
 
You were ontop of me,
 12
dipping into the side of my neck
 13
while I stared at your
 14
popcorn ceiling.
 15
 
 
Oh, the ceiling
 16
looked almost grey
 17
in the dim lighting.
 18
 
 
The way what little light was hitting it
 19
hypnotized me; (along with the steady movement of your bed
 20
and the top of my head hitting your headboard)
 21
slamming against the popcorn bumps
 22
in almost exactly the same way
 23
you were slamming against me.
 24
