The Scottish Lion
After work the men arrive to swap
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.
