Three Poems
by August Roulaux

J. Ruskin on His Wedding Night

Rummaging Ruskin on his wedding night
is made to know the truth about his plight:
that people do (oh my!) horrible things,
and women have hair on their in-betweens.

Ménage à trois

The three of us, we tarry here.
You and me and Monsieur Plaisir,
And I am not at all for sure
Whose company you most prefer.

Why Police Officers Aren't Determinists

Because it's hard to say to victims' parents concerning the accused:
It's not him that did it; he was done to-
Just like Judy.
