Luis Pabon

Bottom Boy Blue

Half-starved and hungry as fuck
I try my best to wait it out

There is a nut that beckons my body
Some mans pleasure in need of saving

My body has become a hero
A Jesus for the maimed and borrowed

The men they come holding heaviness
My body a sweet oasis for burdened scrotums

I carry them inside me
Mother to many distant summers

The eat don’t feed itself a cured hunger
My body whimpers underneath the field of covers

He applies sticky based water
Enters a different lover

Get used to him, by him
We become one and together

We become alone as he feeds me open
And I eat him bone by bone.
