Thirty//Thirty 4/30: The Name Game

The Name Game

Ashamed to admit
I’m falling victim to this.
but then again,
who doesn’t.

They say,
it’s common among men my age.

You pull it out
flaunting it
waving it around
as if we’ve not seen it before.
Regaling us with tales
of where you’ve been
what you’ve done to get here
who know your name.

But lil’ ‘ol me?
I can’t get it up
or down on the page.

The pen
is mightier than the sword
and we can wax phallic poetic
all nite long,
but I don’t want to fight you.

Let us both enjoy the moment
so please,
don’t say a word.
Your talk about its size
gives you away.

  1. HA! phallic poetic-LOVE! I can't get it up or down on the page-very clever play on words!
