Random Poem:

the first time my wife caught me peeing in a beer bottle

i was already
far too drunk
to be shamed by it.
listen honey,
i'm hot with the word,
i can't be bothered
with a toilet.
i flashed her
a shit faced grin,
bent over,
and finished
the job.
she shook her head in silence,
took the bottle
and closed the door.
the wives of poets
and the insane playing at poet
must often wonder
what sideways scheme
has ladled them
these men
of thin bankrolls
and porcupine logic.
