English poetry

Poems in English


a girlfriend came in
Built me a bed
Scrubbed and waxed the kitchen floor
Scrubbed the walls
Cleaned the toilet
The bathtub
Scrubbed the bathroom floor
And cut my toenails and
My hair.
All on the same day
The plumber came and fixed the kitchen faucet
And the toilet
And the gas man fixed the heater
And the phone man fixed the phone.
Noe I sit in all this perfection.
It is quiet.
I have broken off with all 3 of my girlfriends.
I felt better when everything was in
It will take me some months to get back to normal:
I can’t even find a roach to commune with.
I have lost my rythm.
I can’t sleep.
I can’t eat.
I have been robbed of
My filth.
