Just the Tip: A Poem by Carrie Murphy

She’s a Scorpio
so she brushes
her bangs over her eyes
because that’s mystery.
I have an A-cup
so I look like
a tomboy.
If you’re fat
& you lean over
your bellybutton grows
into a slit.
If you pee after sex,
you won’t get pregnant.
Smart girls go home
& bad girls go to bed.
Nice guys finish last
but really, they just
finish. Just the tip &
you’re bowlegged on the
way to the bathroom.
Everyone knows
that. Everyone
knows.
