'I'l do my loving somewhere else! '
slamming the door behind me
the clang of metal
richocheting off the walls of that old tenement building
like pots and pans
in the hands of a 2 year old.
at a walmart bakeoff!
Yes, I remember Margaret..
I had just graduated college
and I was working 2 jobs
one at the fone company
piled high to the sky
with irrate customer complaints,
and the other
at night for a colllection agency
chasing down dead beats
for their every last nicket and dime.
She was sitting in the cubicle next to me
headphone strapped to her neck like a noose,
and she put that cable
around my neck
and took me home with her one night.
She had those 3 inch nails,
and sharp as razors,
slicing into my skin
right through my soul every time we made love
