A Bad Day for Lovin’ You

Your hair’s so finely coiffed,
And your skin glows,
From a precisely metered
Radiation bed … who still believes
That tan skin is an indication
Of health? Today I got the
Results of my blood test,
I turned white, dropped the phone
Like they do in afternoon
Made-for-TV movies,
And later, when you tried to seduce me,
I let you, because I didn’t know how
To break the news, and
Once I do, you won’t be
Guiding me inside you anymore.
