Midnight sweetly suck soft peaks hard ridges
a cute twitching ear. Clandestine, candle-
less acts each panting partner’s pubic fuzz
old-growth jungle in darkness the cruel
sticky fun things that we who in stillness,
nocturnal fragrance, tongues in the sun, gag
down our dear flora moon’s rootbound tresses.
Holding captive junk, black ink, midnight skag,
eyelids close — our hats tipped forward, low slung
guns, or pecs or whatever you call it.
Just think: I will never sleep with you, you’ll
never know such love, or taste such a tongue.
And yet you go on — thinking all this shit
is good. And it is. It is just awful.
