Love Poems Are Horrible And Here's Why

The Manchester Arms Love Nest

Will she groan
out my name
when it is my turn to fill her?

I rhythmically ejaculated
A word that formed on my lips that
lacked any discernible meaning

—Harder, faster, slower
The girl next door screamed
Through plaster lath walls

I open my ears
and dream of aloneness

---William James, 3/5/2007
