late night luv from texas

late night luv from texas
by el guero
we tell stories
of the recent war
wherein for the first time
it seems
both sides have won
have fun
talking about our sex lives
and flirting late
into the night
you studying physics
and your boyfriend’s moods
me eating apples
and ironing silk shirts
for what it’s worth
i’ve known you since you
were seventeen
almost half my present age
something sleazy there
just don’t know where
but you don’t scare
you give good advice
you are wise
in your anime
seen it all done it all
too soon
kind of way
the crush that coulda shoulda
but miles are space
of the most tangible sort
and the mexican food in austin
may still kick ass
but i’m sure the traffic
has only
gotten worse
