Love Poem: Squirrel Girl

Squirrel Girl

I think of that girl 
She looked like a squirrel 
Her petty eyes unfurled 
a peculiar lip curl. 
Her love was a ball point pen 
that wouldn't work. 
Kept on scribbling 
for months and months, 
then it started working, 
and it wrote 
'stop drinking all the 
ginger beer.' 
I'm a veteran of the 
poppy-seed war, 
commander of coke-snorting whores, 
severed now from fatal orgy bores.
