Tuesday Afternoon Shopping.
This one night stand that I was looking for
has now wasted 4 months of my life.
She looked beautiful on the dance floor,
that’s all different on Tuesday afternoon
as she dumps a large box of condoms
into the shopping trolley. She says,
‘It costs less when you buy more of them.’
‘That’s great.’ I say behind her back
whilst making a gun with my fingers.
I kill her, then blow my own brains out.
