Get a job, don't be a slut, she keeps telling me. Answer her that it's a crisis out there, that you have no place to work, kick her out, stick her mouth with adhesive. Can you? Hell you can, it's his mommy. He obeys her; he jumps through the window if the crazy woman asks him. Exhausted, I find a job at the Sex Shop. I tell him I work at the Flex Shop. Oh, you sell tools, he nods. Yes, big ones, small ones, I dick him around. But that's it, today's sucks. I hear behind my back: I want a giant phallus. You're too ashamed to say dick. I turn around and come face to face with the bitch.
