The Sock Family

French Open’s in May.
Jack has his black socks
on the court in red clay.

The twins are running busy.
Mr. Snuggles is at teatime
on the patio with Christy,

and Junior . . . Lord heavens—
Where is Junior?
That boy always goes missing!

He claimed to be a master of sex;
sent her naughty pictures through text.

His penis went limp.
Swollen tongue was its only effect.

The price I pay, searching
for love on Craigslist.
