Badger Running off at the Mouth

There are no Siamese twins in this
Town, no albinos; only soccer

matches, bourbon, steaming horses
and the slick skirts of afterbirth hanging

from hind-ends. I don’t care how
depressed you are, I’m not coming

to your party. Champagne
and sodomy are overrated – in that

order. Smoking in the shower, with a bacon
sandwich and a boy named Daniel waiting

on the sink, on the other hand, are
supremely underrated. I admit,

I’m an unnecessarily handsome
knockabout, nightly drunk to no apparent

effect. But, it’s nice to be worried about.
It’s almost like being cared about.
