POEM FOR R.M. by A.D. Winans

She drove a hummer
And shopped at Walmart
Had a bad smoker’s cough
Restless leg syndrome
Chattering teeth
And a rash that doctors
Had no explanation for
She owned two homes
Had no debts
A good job and money
In the bank
But shopped for clothing
At the thrift store
She shed men like a baby
Sheds diapers
Liked to talk poetry
But only her own
Liked cunnilingus
But fellatio was not
On the menu
Her motto:  “When in Doubt
Don’t put it in your mouth.”
Which didn’t apply to Starbucks
Or dining at Yuppie restaurants
And she asked why
I thought we weren’t compatible

  6. You might have. If this is a problem, just pull it. Sometimes one slips by. I am not very good with record keeping.
