untitled

as if you overheard
a drunkard drawling the secret
names of local insects or
saw a tiresome pageant of feathered
rabbits coated with
star repellent or a sun full of burning cash
and hesitant whispers or a crumbling
wing under a child’s pillow
or just eavesdropped on caterpillars
or yielded your name to a saint or grokked
the wisdom of disoriented
ants or found a manifesto of
the ahem movement

Sex With Anonymous Hussies
Need Not Be Dull

as a true romantic
when you finally gave in to love
it was the death of lust
now all you have is a balm of pity
and a sigh of compromise
as prelude to indifferent sex
that only just pierces your constantly resurrected chastity
you remain aware
but removed
oddly
it’s possible for you to have an orgasm
but it’s pretty damn unlikely
