POEM VI: “Christopher Hitchens said”

Christopher Hitchens said
there is nothing less funny
than a woman recounting her dreams.

He went on to paraphrase
some inane girlish blather
made hilarious by his retelling.

He was like that,
starting out offensive
and slowly working his way around to charm

A bloodied nose
followed by a kiss.

He was drunk and abrasive
and he looked like a goddamned moray eel
on a barstool
but Christ,
I wish he were here
to bloody my nose.
