drunk sober, erotic poetry, gash, marrow bone, mine for the sucking, poem, Saint Sebastian, sobriety, sonnet
They say alcohol makes us beasts. Indeed,
I was drunk each time I snatched you up, mauled
you with clack-claws, with tongue, with unhurried
greed. I thought temperance would cool my ribald
tastes; that my need for a good feed would wilt
with no thirst to drive it. Foolish. I’ve been
foolish. Tell me you still want me to split
you wide, pierce you through like St. Sebastian
with my cock: dozens of bloody deep strokes.
Drunk on that word: gash. Drunk on that other
spirit. Tell me your bone’s marrow is mine
for the sucking. No hangover will coax
out these moans when you cum. Drunk sober
when your cum tastes better than any wine.
