All Dressed Up


You mean I've been all dressed up,
cologned, nostril and ear hair trimmed,
pimples vacuumed, clean underwear
everything bathed and rinsed inside out
and now you are not coming for me?

I even thought of being your sugar daddy
but now that I see that you don't want to be my slut
does that mean that you want to marry me
and make me a bigamist.

Hm! On second thought I started misting
just at the thought that at first you must be

seduced,
won over,
blinded by love,
conquered
dominated,
gagged,
bound

and only then you may believe my empty promises

and only then

I can have you?

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
