#80 - I Hope You Return From Spain With Herpes And An Unwanted Child

You probably think Herpes is a Spanish name, don't you?
You'll probably call the kind Herpes, won't you,
or Herpes Jr, sweet little Herpes nuzzling round
your bedsit floor, his tiny nads blooming with warts,

Herpes Jr gnawing the edges off your social life
like a mouse in the library, and you, suddenly
granted enough time to become briefly aware
of your own mortality,

that lift-plunge light bulb insight instant
where you see the kid's white new eyes,
and the veins through your hands
and you get it
you get it
you get it
