Cheaters (V1) by Michael Lee Johnson

I am tired of cheaters
online, weary eyed crossword
players complicated chest moves
drift dancers, lies, laid soft peddle,
pillow, dark closet dreamers.
Campaign whispers,
infidelity, sex objects
shoved up orifices
in open private places.
Sex joints open late, consummation
nightclubs, cities corners.
Ashley Madison registered dating
service for married people to date,
innocent, aggressors, victims.
Video, digital, selfies everywhere.
Two doctrines of selfishness
you should know about
penises and affairs most are short.
