I gave myself a challenge the other day to write a poem called
with the epigraph
"Sometimes a girl just needs one." —Britney Spears
and tonight, I did it.
I did a backwards ghazal where each first line of the couplet ends with the word "boy" and all the other second lines rhyme with one other second line in the poem.
It's a birthday poem.
"You're only as old as the boys
who'll suck you off," Kyle says and smacks me on the ass.
