You realize your conversations adlib
what you'd never tell - drag races,
drug tracks, anything that lined you
forward, threw you one-on-one.
Oh sun oh noneborn sons I'll never meet.
Oh rearing dogs and peacocks down
my street. So long I've been at sea
beyond the scent of maleness
behind the bars the unloved maned
and all of them amusable
What is the truth, the clandestine
destinies beyond the grave?
What would I save or never shave
for you? What would you break
to gain continuance?
How would you breathe if I left?
