Fat Bottom Girl Said What

When my ass talks, people listen.

Apprentice Pyromaniac

the acrid smoke

of the burning Flint Hills

creeps in

through my cracked office window

soon I shall start my own blaze


I’m not usually one to burn bridges

ever extending my hand

only to get rapped

on the metaphorical knuckles

with your metaphorical ruler

like you’re some damn nun



married only to god

when we both know you’re closer to Mary Magdalene

than you care to admit

I don’t mind living among the whores

I’m quite comfortable here

they don’t judge like you do

and there’s booze


I gather my accelerant

and pick up my strike on box only matches

ready to burn this bitch down

because I don’t need you

or your judgment

If only I’d known

years ago

how good it feels to be a pyro

  1. Poignant and funny and edgy. I love your poetry.

    Here’s my favorite part: “I don’t mind living among the whores
    I’m quite comfortable here
    they don’t judge like you do
    and there’s booze”
