wise man wise guy

i am in so much pain
i want to laugh
an infectious laugh
a laugh like a loaf of bread
thick and satisfying

this morning
the dentist couldn't plug up the hole
in my head
too much pain
chocolate cum on the tongue

my ex ex emails me
tells me she broke up
with her ex ex
last week my ex ex ex asked me how i am
(my ex is marrying an ex in may

my work is circling the drain
my professors lie about reference letters
my cheques bounce
i stopped making my bed months ago
masturbation is fun

there is NO WORK written
over a part of the calendar
and over another it says
get drunk and the rest of the pages
are yet to be filled in
