“our second date, we drank whiskey” by Raina K. Puels


& got naked on the couch in your basement like we were in middle school. you refused to come until i did, poet with triumphant cock. i didn’t say goodbye before i snuck out in the morning; i thought the ‘i ❤ female orgasm’ button i pinned to the curtains above your bed spoke for itself. it’s been two & a half weeks & you won’t text me back, but keep liking all my posts on facebook & instagram. i’ve never received a ghosting this loud—each time your name lights up my phone, you shout ‘boo!’
