    this suit you
    want to
    pack me into?

    I like baggy,
    right?
    not slim. no
    skinny jean,
    nut-mangling
    tourniquet
    thom browne.

    my roomy tent
    may not be
    hyper-chic

    but who am I
    supposed
    to dress like,
    if not me?

    so stuff your
    pc platitudes
    and pop
    psychology.

    I didn’t
    call you here
    to chat.
    Remember,
    dear,
    who you are.
    Not that kind

    of minister.
    The only reason
    whores have
    tongues at all—

    no, that’s
    untrue,
    a little
    dirty talk
    can grease
    a lot of wheels,
    but self-help
    quite unlikely.
    not tonight,
    nice try.

    a jacket
    and a trouser
    have to fit
    the guy, not
    vice versa.

    Interesting humorous lines in the poem, Tom. This phrase caught my attention.

    That reply was harsh
    I am just a little defensive of whores but you are right in most cases the mouth has a singular purpose.

    What I wrote is harsh, Kani.
    Don't take what the world's greatest asshole says, to heart. The opposite is most often true!
    Thank you.
    Defend.

    Oh, my.

    I really liked these lines-
    my roomy tent
    may not be
    hyper-chic

    I agree with Obed. The humor works well to cushion the blow!

    Anna Ruiz I have the same religion as that tree over there.

    If the clothes fit, zip it, I say.
