Two-hundred and Thirty-nine: you should know this

you should know this, she said.
men hang from your finger tips.

i imagined little men suffocating
on the nooses of my nonchalance.

you should know this. but i don’t.
i doubt their beer-soaked odes,
their warm, fumbling hands.

so i made him blush- so what?
so he winked at me- so what?
i say
, it don’t mean a thing
cos it ain’t got that swing.

now i flirt via tape-recorder;
automatic, organic machine
of lip smacks and lash bats.

you should know this. know what?
countless experiments down the

drain. because when it mattered,
i didn’t have one damn answer.
