(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.
