It Ain’t Pretty by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

A woman
who forgoes sex
is like a man
who has something
against breathing
and I told him to
pack in it
that such women usually
do not forgo sex altogether,
just sex with you
or end up murdering you
in your sleep
with a sloppy ice pick of child rage
like Trotsky
but he was adamant
that things
would work this time
that he could turn things around
in the sack
so I wished him luck
and waited for the call
to come down
and identify the
body.
