Two Poems
Brian Beatty

Mascot w/ an Ascot

Four cheerleaders
can't be wrong --
loud & offensive
are now's romantic.

Do you like that
scent behind
my ears?

It's genuine duck.

Prehistoric Hugs & Kisses

My cave needs
female decoration.

My animal hunt
paintings suck.

Too much brown.

Too many bloods.

My fire
is not so hot.

I'm primitive,
but charming.

Oh, you'll gather.
