GEORGIA WILDER

Hall Passes for Wankers

boys will be
you know

she was asking 
for         

love
means never having

girls
wet hot for

you
get extra

five
fingers wooing

yourself
at the cinderblock

wall above your
white love cold

your white cold throne
swear your

superiority over those
who graduate

a flush
overcomes
you.
