sugar is what love needs

by W.M. Butler

although it sounds
cinematic naive weak
sugar is what love needs

lost are the grain elevators
morgan le fey
lancelot is sick passé cliché

my woman left me
for a pack of smokes
and a younger man

as small as this
piece of paper is
i’d let it all just slide by

yes ma’am
i’d pick fights
i’d be wicked.
