A Case Of The Mercedes Bends - Poem by Robin Bennett

You never came
home last night.
I visited your
favorite haunts.

All full of
dead beat dads,
ghastly clothed
women and
blood sucking
lawyers.

I lingered outside
sipping moonshine-
Bathing in neon
and getting high on
exhaust fumes;

You sunk to a new
low. Suffering from
a case of the
mercedes bends while
trying to surface
from the depths of
your bottom feeding
lies.

Now I sit on our
porch, rocking
away. I envy
the greener
grass next door.

Your empty chair
rests on the
porch, ever since
I sued you for
rocking with
someone else.
