Three Very Short Poems about Genital Mutilation

A Wife with a Knife
By far the most woeful and despised gobbet
Was the far-flung penis of John Wayne Bobbit.

Miracles of Modern Medicine, Case No. 358
Some kind of help was needed to intumesce,
but the Chinese pills made it phosphoresce.

On Whether or Not to Go to the Nude Beach
I’d rather my cock got caught in a faulty zipper
than have it bit by a gallinipper.

    The King of the Ferret Leggers
    I would add, Quin – if you pleasel –
    Reg Mellor has trained the weasel.

  2. Rufus McCain says

    From Three Very Short Poems About Genital Mutilation and Other Very Short Poems forthcoming from Korrektiv Press.

    And I’m totally serious.

  3. Quin Finnegan says

    And I am totally game. The novel is too far off.

    Thanks, Rufus!
