Carnal Geeks - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

I was sitting on our sofa
reading a book about
the original carnival geeks
when I realized my girlfriend
sometimes bites my head off
as though I were a chicken

Of course
she gets as mad
as a wet hen
when I call her
The Bearded Lady

Then we wrestle -
I pin her arms to the floor
and
like a beagle puppy
I lick the tip of her nose
She screams at me to stop
but can't quit giggling
as we begin
to tear each other's clothes off.
