go ahead
tell me the story of
your meat
singing in unfurnished rooms
like windchimes

tell me
how anxious since a child
to be touched
by Christ

how disillusioned
by the fraternities
of Sex

how you applied optimism
to the institutions
of workplace
of politics
of marriage
& bankruptcy

& i’ll tell you
of my
involved refusal
of these established

& we can go together
on voting day
to cast our ballots
for a future
of slaves
