Truly Small – Anum Sattar

His dream was to guilt trip a large-chested and small-assed female with whom to suck face. 

So then, wannabe Harvey Weinstein blew his overtime pay: 

To host a gullible woman like me at his rundown apartment… 
Set me up as a featured reader at Barnes & Noble… 
Cover his share of a fancy dinner at Spindletop in Houston, TX… 

and more to achieve a childhood goal. 

All the while a current love interest was imprisoned for driving under the influence of alcohol. 

When I scoffed at his stubby penis, he accused me for leading him on to write a haibun.

he pulls out a strapless bra 
from the New Yorker bag 
when I ask for sneakers 
to change out of heels
