what I dreamt when I wasn’t censoring

I bludgeoned a young girl with
a plumbing flange and a 6 inch nipple.
all iron. I think her 17 and pretty
and it was a horrible thing to do. I’m guessing
I didn’t even do the decent thing and clean
up the mess.
An employee of mine quit. pissed me off.
An old friend called to say she left her husband
of 4 months and I laughed at her because she used
to be interesting and pretty and now she’s no more than
used make up and a tired 22 year old body.

Bad things can happen while I sleep, and pray I should
my soul doesn’t seep into one of those
frightening yellow “recycle your oil here
cans outside Crystal Flash.
