Teenage Thrills

Remember this, children.

When you start practising among yourselves.

Girls, it’s your advantage.

You start masturbating earlier.

Let a boy watch.

I promise he’ll be in awe of.

Today’s feminism sexually asserts itself.
“You can’t come in until I’m ready.”

We do the picking up, take the lead, set the terms.
“Slow down, for fuck’s sake. I come first.”

We display our desire for men. Only then.
Passion shared life’s funky sweatshop. []

Has He Potential?

I’ve got this great delusion of grandeur.

I streak as a prophet.

If you’re going to, go for it.

Does the comma make a split infinitive?

There’s a reason why I’m one.

With being abstruse, ambiguous, apocryphal, arcane.

How many adjectives make a description?

He was enigmatic, equivocal, esoteric.

How about obscure, occult and oracular?

We end with vague and veiled. []

If only I’d had a sense of duty.

How does head of the mental resources department?

See me in the cubicles if you want to challenged.

Sounds like a great idea

Just don’t expect its implementation.

A dreamer’s got nothing much doing.

I like running wild.

I can’t remain very long,.

There’s no place like home instead. []

He Was a Liability

Purpose follows perhaps.

His contentment in front of a camera.

He felt frisky. She played his exposure.

He flicked the tail.

Anger brings pleasure. Emotion takes over.

This might be your field.

He found the loss of control.

I had to defend myself. []

I’m approaching extinction.

Does the light go off when you leave a room?

Really, it’s virtually obvious.

It’s up to us to make of it. []
