The Tijuana Donkey Show (aka DONKEY FUCKER where posting permits actual title to be used)

the heel of her stiletto is on my spine
an aculeus burying deep into the tissue
tearing at the cartilage
crushing my will
she doesn’t fuck around, boy
she just fucks
with stocks and crops
she binds and whips and cuts and shreds flesh
fuck the baseball bat
she takes a 12 gauge to the pinata because she really likes her candy hard
white lines mixed with red blood numbs my blued back
blackness is the shadow which occupies the hole
unilluminated by the moon shine moon pie, you, her pie-eyed fool
those punks are clockin’
punching judy and slinging stones
the crows are caw caw cawing at me
I thought I might have heard one of them say ‘well fuck the donkey’
tijuana isn’t any place for a lady, don’t you know
the street is no place for a man
and she’s no lady

TJ no place for me
I've been to TJ, saw the donkey show, never been back. You captured that essence of that absurd little piece of decadence very well.

Too much information...
...way too much information there, BWoz. This wasn't actually about a TJ Donkey Show...and I'm kind of mortified.

Donkey Fucker was just a snazzy title to get people to read...lit.org won't let you say fucker in the title, but you can say fuck all you want in the poem, I'm informed.

Really, this is about the harsh reality of drugs.

Maybe you got that, and are writing your review in metaphor as well. Let's us say that's what your review was, metaphor.

So, you say you've battled some chemical demons as well, BWoz? Harsh reality, huh? But I suppose it could always be worse...you're psyche could be permanently scarred, say, from having seen something as dehumanizing as a woman having sex with a donkey for a few peso.
