the man in me would rather
be stepping over rocks
climbing uneven ground

as is my bodies design
for this square box life
sit up
right angles
letter, square letterhead
tie pressed square shave
suit jacket
appointment book manager
tennis court
square box

squarebox activities

behaviors learned
from a square box

I want mountains
I want
between my toes

concrete square
parking box

sole arch’s ill fit
for flatland

my legs have
a want for running
and pasture
exposed, naked
in the rain

there’s a moon
out there
and I’ll have her
sing ecstasy
I, the dog of rape
and She, my forgiving fantasy

in the heaven-white
wards of virtue
