Seasoned Gash

There is something
we must discuss, John,
a thing we must resolve
before the night goes any further
and we do something
that one of us will certainly regret.

John, I love you like a brother
of some distant cousin but
you have to stop showing up
to my home
and then going off and sleeping
with all my girlfriends.

I know from your status updates
that you can find ladies all on your own.
You don’t need to poison my rivers as well.
Keep your flow
to yourself.
Take a lover
separate from mine.
I know you can do it
and I think you know it, too.
Leave mine be.

Leave me be
and maybe
at least some of the time
you could wash the sheets.
