Professor 



Professor 

Oh professor hello
My! my! how the suit 
Is followed by my eyes 
While your hand is at the white board
The fundamentals of Psychology…
Oh, how interesting 
Would you like to analyze me?
I bet I’ll blow your…
Mind
After class, after hours
In my mini skirt 
And cherry sucker 
White blouse 
With snap buttons
Hair in a messy bun
Nice and warm 
Like bread from the oven
Hello, how do you do?
No ring on your finger
Are you single too?
Laughs and holler backs
Bending over 
Filling my glass
Extra credit?
Let me be your star student
Cherry sucker
Come a little closer
Have you figured me out yet?
Um…no
Not by a long shot 
I’ll need you to fill in
All my late night appointments
Oh! the nice long couch of a therapist 
And all the extra credit 
Professor is willing to give 



Happy Now?

Happy Now?

Are you happy baby?
Pull my strings and weigh me
Cinch the ties and wrap me
Up against the wall
But make sure not to be there when I fall
Broken parts on a stainless floor
Sew your puppet back together
Paint my bruises with some concealer
Add a layer of powder, rouge? Or will you use a bronzer?
Muted until you stitch my lips back on
Dolled up as you please
Lips, eyes, chest, back, knees
Beating me into submission
To feed your anxious demons
Oh isn’t life just grand!
Now my blood decorates your hands
My ugliness is showing again
Stretching and stuffing
Life is pouring out faster than you can put it back in
The quickness of your fingers on that needle
Are you happy now?
