Girl Talk
By Nick Talent

Girl, I hear you.
You think he loves you
because he feeds you

I guess you haven’t
noticed how often
he sips and swigs

or how he drives with
a Bud between his knees
and another on ice

or just how many bottles
he brought for the weekend
you spent together

Girl, he might love you.
But not nearly as much
as he loves the drink.
