sex rose from the depths

& again

we escaped it

vigilant

locally proud like

aldermen

while liquids drained

back to tributaries

 

the featherweight of an

instant

too thin to grasp

flint by spark

chisping out into the

social network night

 

& then more

nights of ho & hum

 

oh lover who mouths

syllables in the mirror

who takes his skill set first for

granted, then away
