look at the balls on that guy

by on January 25, 2017 :: 0 comments

I just wrote my letter of resignation,
saved that fucker
to my desktop for subsequent retrieval;
if only I had the balls to submit
the thing.

But it’s hard to have balls
when you need that monthly paycheck—

rent
utilities
food
gasoline
auto insurance
phone
internet

I have been castrated
by comfort
as the prospect of homelessness
frightens me.

I’m getting there, though.

Writing this letter of resignation is a step
in the right direction
and when you see me out there on the sidewalk
holding my little cardboard sign
please don’t let my enormous balls
scare you away.
