Road Trip

this cute little girl named Alicia
whom four years ago was sucking
my friends cock because he sold
not a little
of most any drug one could want
he claimed she started asking
about things one shouldn’t ask
a drug dealer
so he dropped her
my friend the dealer is long gone now
off selling houses in upstate New York

and as I sit here looking at Alicia
delivering drinks to slobby drunks
like me that choose to sit at a table.
I don’t think his story was true
she’s way too good looking for him
I think she had a moment of clarity
realized that and left
one day I will ask her
but not today

she’s telling me how Tanya,
a former mutual friend we had together
who stole my laptop
last time I was in jail
and stole every article of clothing
Alicia didn’t have on her body
plus her toothbrush,
was back in town yesterday
Alicia got a couple phone numbers
from her
and an address
where she lived in Vegas
I took those down
and called Billy
who was also ripped off by Tanya
collectively we all decided
on a road trip

    clever little poem as the reader is left wanting the real action of the road trip to vegas and subsequent recriminations, a good poem is one that always finishes too soon for the reader. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
