while i was on the phone by j.j. campbell

should have married the

one that locked her office 

door and masturbated at 

her desk while i was on 

the phone with her

i tried to get her to mail 

me those panties, but she 

never did

i never was the type of guy 

that could just go up to a 

beautiful woman and ask 

her to sit on my face if she 

could find the time between 

drinks and laughs

hell, i have only bought 

a woman a drink at the bar 

twice in my life 

the first one was married 

and the second one fucked 

someone in the bathroom 

before i even got back to 


needless to say, 

i drank both of those

long island iced teas

mumbling something

about piss poor timing


J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) is old enough to know where the bodies are buried. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Synchronized Chaos, Cajun Mutt Press, The Rye Whiskey Review, Misfit Magazine and just good poems. You can find him most of the time on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delight. (https://evildelights.blogspot.com)
