New Poem Day # 5...

Today's poem details an important lesson I learned back in college about the dangers of inviting a female friend to a "guys' night."

Male Bonding

When I agreed to let
her go out with us
to the bar, she promised
she would act like
"just one of the guys."
But there was something
in the way she kicked
me under the table
every time I'd talk
to another girl that
hinted to me she'd
gone back on her word.
