Conversations At 6 In The Morning

Mermaids with drunken eyes
and claws of love
masquerading as flowers
that grow on 6 foot tall stalks

between seasons young
girls become women
and fall in love
as men fall to sleep

in bed she talks about her ex
and I imagine
from what she tells me
that he is some 6 foot tall
or Don Juan
with a large
9 inch cock
who writes
like Bukowski
has a voice like Leonard Cohen
and a Lou Reed soul

I tell her,
“We tend to forget all the bad stuff
with enough time and distance.”

then I roll over in bed
cuddle my pillow
and fall back to sleep

– A. Ramirez
