TO Michelle (At the Buzz)

To Michelle
at the Buzz Inn
where I was to
grab a beer and grin
with my buddy Lee
I may have a thing to say
to EWE
(and yes, i can spell michelle, This POEM is to you.)
First things first-
“Get a job”
ya said,
as I nod my head
all I did was ask if you wanted a bite!
sorry u don’t eat fried food
I shouldn’t either, dude.
I just wanted to know YOU MORE IS ALL
GEEZE
food would bring conversation!
and NO I’m NOT HITTING ON YOU
I’m NOT GAY,
I’m the straightest tomboy I know –
Heaven forbid-
or could you even IMAGINE
I SAW
something of value and worth in you that had more to do than with
WHAT YOU CAN GIVE?
THAT IS ALL
CAN WE BE FRIENDS?
Thank YOU LEE FOR DINNER
I AM SORRY I AM A SINNER
I CANNOT AFFORD MY OWN FOOD
I’m a writer but nobody pays me
cause what I write I PUT OUT FOR FREE
I don’t make you buety my book
i’ve let everyone look
here’s my insides here’s emma
here take a look
I spew out ideas I GUARANTEE
someone else will Plagueurize
Already happened, BITCHES
YOU WITCHES
YOU MONEY WHORE MONGERING WRETCHED STENCHES
Hookers For Jesus
Annie Lobert did EAT AND PAY HER BILL WELL
I TRUST
WHILE I WAS EMOTIONALLY BUSTED AND WORKING ON A BUS
WITH SIRENS AND LIGHTS
MAKING SURE EWE AND YOURS WERE
HOME SAFE AT NIGHT.
Don’t speak to me of work like I haven’t HAYBAILED SINCE I WAS 13
my mom sure did know
how much i cost
since i was a kid
IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO DOCUMENT
EVERY SHOE AND CANDY AND MOVIE SINCE I WAS 13
SHOWING IT TO ME AT 16 HURT ME
cause I was NEVER ENOUGH
so i lived feeling indebted
I GREW UP THAT WAY
HEAD DOWN OH I KNOW I COST
So i went off to a law office
at 16
doing things like filing
SECRETARY by 18
LIFE WAS FUN
Just a girl in the world
flirting and dating
all I wanted to do
was dance and write and sing
and save lives and fight fires
SO I DID
COAST GUARD SAID NO
ASTHMA MAKES YOU A NO GO
Only 80 percent OF YO LUNG
SAYS YO SPRUNG
if you think the military
will want you go do what you do?
OK, I’m still a kid
So I’ll do instead what I DID
I joined a HOSPITAL SHIP
and went on a trip
to Belgium and Antwerp
and Luexbourg
AND LIFE IS A JERK.
SO WHERE HAVE EWE BEEN?
I bet you Michelle,
have been trapped in a MAN’s PLAY PEN.
You got your daily miles in.
Let’s go get drunk at the Buzz Inn
Maybe I can get Emma RILED UP?
WHY POKE WHY PROD?
STOP. BEFORE I POP
I POP
I’m POPPING I’m exploding.
