Love in the 21st Century


Recommended Posts

The thing is, you know,

not to hope or indicate,


nor intimate nor gesture,

nor show any shadow, nor any ghost

of non-agreement


as if one expects to be accepted

within twenty years. I live

in a world of open indribbling love


involving women and gay men,

all of whom I like and cheerfully abuse,


preserving the sanctity

of my ivory pimpled buttocks


and warding away

the wilder women.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Two things:


any ghost of non-agreement




all of whom I like and cheerfully abuse


My comment: effing brilliant. :)


Too funny, the whole thing 'tis. I admire the freedom.in your writing.
