Poetry by Catfish McDaris & A Cover Tune* by Acoustic Acid

My Penis Has No Brain

Gazing into her hazel eyes where
the golden honey flecks swam, I
thought something has to give

With strong suspicions of having
a male clitoris between my ears
that controlled my lusty erections

I’d always walked on the dark path,
following the wind, listening to the
trees, watching the white crosses on
the hill and funerals in the spring

Laying my cards on the table for all
the pretty ladies, popping cherry gum,
turquoise roaches, killing with kindness

Iridescent flies on a bloated corpse, fat
monkeys, beavers in a woodpile, saber
tooth tigers, Eskimo snow ninjas

Just leave the porch lights on, front and
back, if you’re lucky I’ll stumble into
your neighborhood like Romeo on Viagra.
