With the cyclist thighs
plus a pair of oceanic eyes
yellow tights
fuck, I wish you were here tonight
bedside, sippin red wine
no, drinking too much
that's that shit you don't like
so I'm sticking with peppermint tea and ice cream
abstemious gentleman, that's me
never sneaking Jim Beam
stashed in a flask beneath the bathroom sink
brushing my teeth
suppressing urges to call you darling
and lick your teeth until they're shiny
I'm sorry
I meant to say lick your teeth until they're shiny
and kiss that lonely dimple on your cheek

I spent the spring
harnessing my inner sleaze
sweating beneath foreign sheets
on my knees indiscriminately
call it reactionary
practicing glances
kind eyes and a suggestive smile
to girls with style
lets see: a pair of skinnys and some boots,
humor uncouth, plus a knack for singing the black and blues
maybe tattoos
Now I'm whispering sweet thing to some beauty with bangs
the type to make me forget about old hang ups
emotional bang ups
and drinking when i wake up
Summers coming
cut offs: cut rough, cuffed once
cut em long enough to keep the scars from much sun.
