the female is sweet
as she sniffs out
This is pleasantly deceptive, as the man gets complimented
on his physique
his intellectual abilities
and all of his good qualities
It’s positive female attention
but then she discovers a cavity, like a dentist, searching for decay
a vice, like leaving his socks on the floor, or eating in bed…
It’s been carefully hidden,
like his feelings
but it’s a spot on his white smile
and then she drills
without Novocain, enjoying his pain
“Serves you right!” She said.
And the sound
is the echo of her screams
which makes him wish he were dead.
All men have a weakness, like a bull
and she puts a ring in it
when he puts a ring on her finger
they lived happily ever after.
