The Scottish Lion


After work the men arrive to swap

work stories

war stories

sex & pussy stories.


Stories where girls do things with their mouths

you never thought girls could do.


A lewd fraternity,

not unlike our mothers’ quilting bees.

But men replace needles and tea for stained bills and beer.

Where the crude and the nude patch up the afternoon-


it’s melting away into the dusk.

It’s been dark in here since 11am.

Hollows darkened by beer clouded windows that shield

the possums from the light.
