He was as grandiloquent as the word grandiloquent
overly verbose and painfully engrossed
in the putrid sweetness of his ego
that he reeked of—
“It’s a new scent by Dior” he told me
winking, sinking his perfumed fingers
into the fire of my mind.
But what pissed me off the most
about that overdose of pompous words
was how many of them I scribbled
in my journal
to define later.
