Opinion – Road Boners

road boners
it’s that van vibe
humming deep inside
the dreaming rocker
twenty/something/males
dreading that shake
up/tour spieling
(minutemen)
out of slumbering
sexual dreams
and looking down
does anyone notice
my road boner
and the first stop
of any pit
(s)top
a purchased
pile of porn
(gary’s got a boner/
the mats!)
gasoline grin
to feed the fire
O road boners
and
everybody
knows
(leonard cohen)
the last man in the chelsea
hotel
room
is taking care of business
(bto)
it’s unspoken
the wheel’s not broken
it just for the chokin’
and the boys
all have girlfriends
but the sexy one
dancing/fronting you
so drunk
touching herself
her hands
O road boners
and you’re drunk too
somehow
you can’t be too strong
(graham parker)
but the truth is
for two girls
any of these
rockers
will break their vows
O road boners
and now with advent
of laptop technology
it’s all about the
portability
of porn and masturbation
the roadhouse frustration
the end of
the gut
ter snipe
you
tope
eee
ah!
