There’s a first time for this, anything for there’s a first time, but it feels like the last time, Over and over again. Playing that same old sad song. Straddling my midsection cock and eating my guts. Tearing into flesh with the sharp beak of stealth. Tied to the headboard, I watch you lovingly roll my innards in the frying pan with onions, bell peppers, and paprika. Nice bratwurst, kielbasa, or polish sausage on a French roll. Garnish with fresh mint. It goes quite nicely with a well aged Merlot. Down in the hallway, someone is screaming for dear mercy, the gods through the bathroom ceiling
The blast knocks
her an indent where her body once was…back against the wall and leaves me.
Yet, you told me you didn’t want much. Yes, I’d buy that for a dollar. Just let me have one last cigarette, one last first before you finish me off.
