A Love Poem for Deviants Like Us

Because I sleep with the dog between my legs
Doesn't mean I'm in love
Sometimes we walk down Park Avenue at night
My dog, Pepe, likes women in fur
It reminds him of Cassy---
The cat he couldn't fondle
Our home is a dungeon
On the loveseat are my whips and handcuffs
Anyone is invited from virgins to vandals
When we make love
I'll be wearing my black leather boots
You can wear my fake moustache
But keep your hands tied behind your back
I don't know you, you don't know me
If you want me to,
I'll get on my knees and bark
Your flesh is white
My mouth is black
We can be so dangerous together
