Cupid's Understudy

by Max Bouillet

gurgling in the slop
of his own gluttony
he sopped up the immature
squiggles before the rummage
of awkward wannabes
lapped up what was left.
(and that wasn't easy)

spongy and thick
they wagged rhapsodic
chanting, "I think I can. I think
I can," before eventually
lapsing in the phlegm
of a pneumatic goat.
(and as you can guess)

the prayers of spongy thick
wagging things rarely
wrap around the drum
of the cosmically inclined.
But pudgy handed he wrenched
the spongy thick things from
their phlegmy loft and crammed
them in the puddled muck.
(And the goat's been pissed ever since.)
