my brother, the benadryl & his balls

my brother, the benadryl
and his balls
he wants to show me
following me from room to room
his hand on his zipper
the rash on his balls
he wants to show me
his miniature motor popsicle
stick toy go cart
he made
he turns it upside down
he says look
the motor stays in
i glued it
he wants to show me
red spotted itching thighs & balls
his hand on his zipper
he wants to show me
the budweiser bottle he drilled
on the washing maching,
he almost had a stroke —
beautiful clean hole, now
94.3% success rate
he wants to show me
his balls — he WILL show me
HIS BALLS if i don’t buy him benadryl
right now
he wants to show me
his drip project drying
on the kichen table
the pictures of his runaway cat
his display of medications on the tv tray
his plate of hot dogs adorned
with bright stripes of ketchup & mustard
he wants to show me
HIS BALLS
his hand on his zipper
that never moves from the clasp
