Personal Story

All the Men I Like to Get F****d By

Poem 16 ±

April 16, 2017

All the men I like to get fucked by
Are dealers
T mostly, G too, but usually they want me
To parTy not do G
I'm still tryna lose my G cherry
I was about to, now, with The Dark Lord,
But he asked me if I'd had any alcohol and I had,
I'd taken a swig of red wine right out of the bottle
Right before I left to come here (to the Dark Lord's place)
Just as a little treat & to get the coffee taste
Out of my mouth


T = methamphetamine, the drug you may remember from Breaking Bad.
G = GHB or gamma-hydroxybutyrate, the drug you may remember from The Black Party.
