The Fifty Cent Tour

two ply goodbye

your love is a post-it
a sharpie tattoo
a cracked rearview mirror
object in view

tho i was blindfolded
i saw through your act
the paper was nicer
than what i unwrapped

you're a bad love song written
on truckstop t.p.
quilted and scented
to softly kill me

you're a flypaper poet
stuck on himself
a slippery tail chaser
in search of yourself

kindly bind me, then leave me
in charmin
 adieu's
i will think of you fondly
when i go #2

but here's a confession
and end to begin...
one day i'll be over you
under my skin

  4. Biting...Bitter...a bit of black humor.

    It reminds me of JD Blackfoot's song from the 70's entitled, "I Flushed You from the Toilets of My Heart."

    This made me laugh as I winced. Well done.
