It's Hell

One of the writers I admire is Dorothy Parker for her incessant insistence upon humor in even the most painful self-revelations. I think I wrote this poem while reading her collected poems.




It's Hell

It's Hell you say
As you assay
With a pro's cache
The chemicals we
Have procured to allay
The night's malaise

It's Hell you attest
But without the interesting
Party guests
The assassins
The buggerers
And the incest

It's Hell I agree
This eternal thrashing
In the scree
And watching you slither
Twixt debauches
Tailored more to you
Than me
