NaPoMo Day 22

(you used to be so hot, he said)

 

you used to be so hot, he said, back when

i first met you, with your long curly hair

& your tiny waist & your tight ass, damn

you were so sexy, now i wonder where

that girl went to.  well, so do i, dude, so

do i.  but it’s been 13 long years &

things change.  ya know, that’s just the way things go.

while we both like the same rock’n’roll bands

& we both live to hunt & fish, it takes

more than that to maintain a loving bond.

you know me, i have never been a fake

& i tell the truth.  you were a monster.

the truth is, you beat the crap out of me.

that ages a woman irrevocably.
