Stevieslaw: Sex Appeal

Pure Slush is producing a seven volume anthology on the deadly sins.  My poem “Sex Appeal” is in Volume 6, Envy, which was just released today.  Here is the Poem:

Sex Appeal

 

From his early teens

my fast friend Tom

was fluent in woman.

His at-ease-ness

with the fair sex

was so at odds

with my slight

experience,

I suspected

a pact with Lucifer

 

I hung around,

hoped that one or more

budding damsel

might tire of Tom

and find my

tight lipped stammer

and pimpled brows

appealing

but never

a nibble.

 

Secretly,

I wished Tom rickets.

I wished him a misstep

on the subway platform

as the 7th Avenue Express

roared through.

I wished that Zeus

would bolt his too easy

heart and leave

him to smolder

in the schoolyard.
