Shut Your Dirty Mouth

this is a jacked up version
of you
i can't listen when you explain math
your teeth are white
so is the wedding dress
i could've worn back in june

june is a jacked up month
that gave birth to you

i can't figure out numbers
we've gone over that-
stop pressing my button
the one that says 'THINK'
my thoughts are all dead

let me color pages
like they did in daycare
when there was nothing to do

crayons are nicer than you

i can't feel the sun on my skin
did you shoot it again?

birds are scared of your beard
they live in the roof
because it's jacked up
like the hair on your face

which reminds me
i need to buy razors

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
