Song to Slow Dance to

Song to Slow Dance to 

Whatever gestures towards satisfaction
can never fully satisfy you

Think of the slow dance
how its softness and falsetto can alter time
for only three to four minutes

Think of the euphemism

Think of language
which is itself a euphemism

Everywhere there are bodies clanging together
there will one day be no bodies
Every body you give yourself to
will vanish
As will your own body

We know pleasure
because it ends


  1. Wow, you went from a touchy feely moment to a disappearing act. a little existential
