My Inopportune Boner
He is a disgraced politician
serving a citizenry of clandestine animals.
He ruins everything
he touches. He comes
into contact with unremarkable strangers and surreptitiously records them
on obsolete technology. On summer evenings,
he often lounges in his leather chair, thumbing a bottle of J&B, adorned
with comically large headphones and uses his venal lips to re-create
the sound of hip bones breaking and reforming.
