When my first
girlfriend broke
up with me
                                     she was as
                                     cold as
                                     air conditioning on a bald man's head

                                                                             she said
                                                                             We can cover it up
                                                                             But the truth remains
I see the students looking at me as I teach
I see their bored, dull faces
I see anxiety, and the deep, passionate boredom of angsty teens
I hear them behind me as I write on the board for them to learn

About Walt, about list-poems, and life, you see
They are whispering and think I do not hear
True story
When my first girlfriend broke up with me,
she was as cold as Ben & Jerry's. (Yes, the ice cream.)

The message her digital pigeon did carry?
"I've Ben with Jerry."
follow up poem:
"I Got a Frosty at Wendy's"

It melted all away
Nothing cold can stay
When
my first girlfriend broke up with me

she
was as cold as

the very vacuum of space
she said

                that I ****.

Mortality is surprising as it should be.
That you should die is not implied by life
Or pain. There is a sweater hanging in his closet.
If one were to look closely at the
                       neck the thread begins un
                       raveling the
                       re. No one will
                       notice
                       she s
                       ai
                       d. But it is his sweater and he noticed.
But it is only a sweater and really no one will notice.
It isn't what they look for.
There once was a man without job,
Who frankly was quite the heartthrob.
He wrote rhymes quite good,
Reverse syntax could,
So why does he yet have no job.
