suck sf by Jon Bennett

There’s a bunch of new restaurants
with one word names
in San Francisco
chow, fig, lark, grub
there’s nothing substantive
about these names
they imply a depth of meaning
they simply don’t have,
but here are some of my own
scab, dust, apoplexy,
dope, chigger, and
My favorite is suck
they would sell boba tea
and blowjobs.
Yeah, I’ve been thinking
of moving
for a while.
