i’d like to think
i’m not a threat
to anyone save
for the weekend pet

the beat-down mutt
with the blaring eyes
whose weekday chores
incite yelps and cries

enough to crush
my heart like pills
huffed and puffed
through dollar bills.

even though nick
warned you you’d get hep C.

the week’s as watered down as your
21st b-day Long Island iced tea.
