i cough and gag
and expel you
like an overdue hairball
stuck within my throat
some mindless lover
unsuspecting
the future heartache
i will cause him
caught my curiosity
i lick my paws
to rid myself
of the rancid taste
of you
expired tuna
in a bloated can

That makes me feel better about my poetry. I love it when people interpretate it in unique modes. Everyone sees it one way or the other. Thank you, TheSkyOwesMeRain.

Thank you so much. You just made my day. And ex-es are expired tuna in bloated cans. (I wouldn't know too much about this. But, I'm pretty sure they are.) And thank you about the "about me". Took me a while to come up with that. But I'm proud of it. Thank you! So so so so much.

Great work here! I love the imagery you use, especially "expired tuna" and "overdue hairball" and "mindless lover". I especially like how the poem can be interpreted in a couple different ways, depending on the reader's own experiences. :)

omg. this>>> These images are spectacularly and disgustingly unique. I love it. Like, the lover isn't just a bad taste, he's "expired tuna"  I really can't think of many foods more disgusting than that. On point, as always mckay. And can I just say that your "about me" gave me life. Okay im done going on about how awesome you are k bye :)

It is disturbing. It just came to me out of nowhere. Subconcious poem. Thanks. Though I think expired tuna would be bad for you dog. XD
