Upstroke

Misery loves
a fuck buddy
eager to put out
not ready to commit

fickle in our fantasies
so subtle in our symphony

hear that?
complain of the pain
like no one else
can feel it

masturbating messiahs
in our own right

minutiae
in a sea of sorrow
longing for
flotation device

comparing vices on the upstroke
bitching with our last dying breath
