And The Dog Complains by Jon Bennett

I can’t sleep
and she’s only pretending to
because we did all the coke
though we agreed,
“just a little.”
Her pug dog hates me.
I wake him up every 2 minutes
because he snores like Fred Flintstone,
but finally he runs into the living room
and hides under the couch.
In the morning
I find my underpants
only they’re
some other dude’s
and she hides
her face in the pillow
while the dog
waddles back in
and pisses on the floor.
