Three Finger Wave


Day 17

Hello reader, just a side note here, I’ll be putting these poems on my podcast in May and discussing my journey. The podcast is KDOI Podcasting click on the link, there is 3 seasons worth of art, discussion, interviews projects and more.

Today, I’d like you to challenge you to write a poem that similarly presents a scene from an unusual point of view. Perhaps you could write a poem that presents Sir Isaac Newton’s discovery from the perspective of the apple. Or the shootout at the OK Corral from the viewpoint of a passing vulture. Or maybe it could be something as everyday as a rainstorm, as experienced

Three Finger Wave

17 April 2019

We avoid eye contact when we are done

For me it is just a transaction

For my clients, I do things their wives won’t do

Of course I use protection

and I wash up when we are done

most guys won’t shake my hand

I get it, they don’t want friendship

They are trying to be cool

Worries that I will call later with bad news

I always take precautions, I always take care of anything that may arise

I am a professional

They should realize it when they enter my “office”

and see me in my uniform

I crack a joke and let them know there are no cameras

so if they enjoy themselves no one will know

My word is bond

I realize others in my profession

have written tell all books

names names

embarrassed their clientele for a cheap buck

once you go down that path

the well dries up quickly so hurry and make all the money you can

When you try to get out of this profession and into another

how do you put this on your resume

no one will vouch in public for the services you provide

I get referrals because I grease the right palms

never the left one, okay that is an insider joke

I don’t see retirement as an option

I enjoy getting deep into my work

So many men from so many walks of life

and only I can provide what they need, I save their life,

I save their marriage, I save their manhood

I won’t get a call for awhile

when their embarrassment subsides

we can explore deeper into their darkest regions
