    This is a story about...
    Whatcha Call It and Something Or Other,
    who decided to become lovers for one night.
    They pretended to know their bodies
    but their faces were strangers.
    Whatcha Call It and Something Or Other
    usually meet in places where sex is all that's left,
    like clubs of denial or parties of subconscious pain.
    No need for a name,
    because they won't call each other afterwards.
    No need for love,
    because love is a noun and lusting is a verb.
    Words are killed at the drop of a mind.
    Time stands still because
    affection feels so much better when it isn't real.
    No responsibility for actions is required.
    This is when humans can retire from the world,
    curl up in oceans of hotel bedsheets,
    and drift away into oblivion against deserted skin,
    allowing their sweat to wash away the thirst.
    Something Or Other moans the hurt away
    and Whatcha Call It thrusted his heartache into hers.
    Their movement sang lullabies of absent passion,
    told by the reactions of bed springs, back scratching, and beaten walls.
    Something Or Other called God
    but she really didn't want Him to answer
    because there was no need for saving.
    Erasing reality from her head,
    and the only position she laid in,
    is similar to when you're dead.
    No need for sexual creativity,
    just get the job done before the sun comes up.
    Whatcha Call It forgot what a condom was,
    forgot all of the teaching and youthful preaching that
    sex can ruin lives, if you don't use its beauty right.
    Something Or Other forgot about her mother
    and the upbringing of a Godly background.
    Thrown out of character and into this sexual choir
    where he plays her strings and she sings a sharp soprano.
    Human beings are so forgetful
    when it's the most important time to think.
    We drink ignorance by the gallons,
    drunk while falling off mountains we created.
    Memories of common sense have faded.
    So we ask, where on Earth did I leave the Whatcha Call It?
    I know I left it right here but tears washed it away!
    I used to pray to Something Or Other
    because it told me I was more than what the devil wants me to be
    but I lost that beauty in Whatcha Call it,
    horribly learning about the freedom in stupdity.
    When Something or Other tells me it's wrong,
    my long past of bad experiences break bones.
    So I lean on those krutches of the past alone,
    just to live in the excuses of never living right.
    It's not real kissing, it's just sharing spit
    and this is how regret is born.
    Doing Something Or Other,
    and not remembering why you did it.
    So Whatcha Call It used the night
    To empty an insecurity that will just fill back up tomorrow
    but under these stars, he's a one night stand man
    and she's just a stunted growth.
    As they both claim amnesia and unconsciousness,
    they try to kiss the pain away
    until the sun tattle-tales another day.
    They are Whatcha Call It and Something Or Other
    Because they didn't care about their names
    But it won't be a mystery to remember
    When they'll call it a baby or something like AIDS

    Oh my, ...wow
    First let me, let you know, I have always admired your writtings. This one hit the top of the charts,
    So strange how "Ignorance is bliss", how we blissfully take a ride on the A-Train.
    Excellent piece poet!!
