I had an aunt that taught me the phrase

I’ll show you mine if you…

Back in the formative days

Behind a dumpster she had nice breasts

She smelled of unused tampons and horses breath

My grandfather had 45 confirmed kills

I was chasing ice cream trucks for cheap thrills

She introduced me to her neighbor who taught me how crayfish are caught

While he sat on the riverbank and masturbated into a sock

I heard later that he died of aids

Left behind a wife a daughter

The coming of age

Freedom from the slaughters

And those Normandy raids
