Bedtime Stories

      by the Naughty Pines

Three rengay written anonymously in the Spruce meeting room at the Seabeck Haiku Getaway late at night on 26 October 2019, in Seabeck Washington.


no kiss from my date
I suck out the pimentos
from a jar of olives

        whipped cream on her toes
        he looks for the cherry

newlyweds next door
with Bach

        too late she discovers
        his anime fetish

the stud
in his belt
catches her hair

        at the orgy someone asks
        “who else is coming?”


roll over
I can’t find
the hole

        peeking through the curtain
        wolf moon

well hung
on the knob
star-spangled panties

        the smell of something
        on their fingers

dessert buffet
between the sheets

        at Seabeck
        nice guys finish last


a long stare
from the dog
we change positions

        the train’s still rocking

she peels off
his fishnet stockings
with her teeth

        the walls of the Chunnel
        closing in

the swingers insist
their cucumbers be

        our common ground
        the mile-high club
