Angry poem about boyfriend


No title

Don't you come huffily stubble to me
with your overcoat depressions;
furrowed brows winking at the brim
of a hat.

You bore me
with your hands-deep-in-pocket thoughts;
hole-in-shoe-shuffle with sad old seg sound.

Your turn-ups tell a tale of turn downs.
You escape for a while through the neck
of a good second-hand shirt.

Ritzy jackets, razzy ties;
belted up trousers strain
over circuit-trained thighs.

You want to be in a boom town baby
...so go.
