I’ve been told
ladies are supposed to
cover themselves
in flowers, fine wines,
or men.

Fuck poetry,
ladies don’t have
time.

But lately,
Bukowski sits
upon a barstool
in my head
laughing.

He’s telling me
to fuck her, poetically,
emotionally, physically-
figuratively speaking.

I can’t decide which
“her”
he is referring to,
( the new or the old )
when jealousy
on both ends
has me
by the
throat.

Why do I attract
broken girls
like abandoned
puzzle pieces?

Why do my words
not sit right
in my mouth
when I can’t
even stand up
and speak
for myself?

I don’t deserve
to be a
poet.

Your "Found Poetry" inspired me to include a section like that in my Master's thesis.  I had a lot of fun trying different things, and I am pleased with how they came out, for the most part.
