JOHN HORVATH jr 
Virgin on the John

virgin sitting on the john cries at the bedroom brute waiting in his penguin suit sometimes marriage is escape and sometimes wedding is a wrong committed to prove to mom and dad an independent streak, a strong affection, desire for a private life-- what has she gotten into now? what does it take to be a wife? how much surrender of the will how many times each month can be enough--and still she goes through with it, marches like a lamb to slaughter, is given like a scapegoat 'fore the Lord; her family--abandoned--witnesses and no one says, 'all this and his mistresses, his Monday football night, his poker night, his lonesome cock some night wanting rub after his Friday flings among his friends, drunk bastard on his way home at home with her with her with HER and with who else he surrenders loneliness and promises that unto death, though poverty and all of that and what of her? and what of spreading womb? And what of this bathroom like a porcelain tomb? Her mother never told her none of that. She must come out in order to begin the life she's promised for herself eternal in its bound as ban has promised both: some singles leave that life for only love.
