A modern sonnet about being disposable (and very easily so) to someone I care for.


though plain and simple's what you said you'd like
again your pimpled tongue has gone on strike
apparently the raw and open breast
beats quietly if law is your behest

"just be yourself" on penalty of chill
well there is self but now more deftly killed
but blame is game and i've no heart for play
i'm lame a shame this tart will go away

whatever insecurities you've lain
to rest in my obscurity and pain
they've cured penile irrelevance, my tears
why maybe you can bottle them like beers

and set them on a shelf as you did me
the self demanded but dishonestly

I LOVE this. I must admit, I am hung up on this line.

"...again your pimpled tongue has gone on strike..."

Gave me a fit of the giggles.
