1 to 1,000
Women take so much damn time and energy
it’s really a wonder I’m still alive.
They say one woman can
energize the soul and satisfy a field of bees with a pinch of pollen;
I wouldn’t know about that,
but I can tell you that a thousand women
will trample your guts
and leave you destitute
with a penny at the bar.
I’m fine with leading into them.
It’s the escaping I can’t seem to work through,
and every case seems a worse bit of romantic
rigor mortis than the last,
like we’re working our way toward the final
race of the day at Arlington Downs.
