Hardware Stores

Those denizens of innuendo
With their bushings, couplers,
male and female adapters–
Their spigots, spouts, and
lubricants right next to the
aisles of screws and nails.

No wonder men go there–
It’s not just the tools;
It’s the constant reminder
that they’re more human than not
so bang with the hammer
and tap the driver some–
If his wife knew the lingo
She’d be sure he stayed home.
