what about love?

for us…

she never could squeeze herself into cuticles
you ease brown from underneath
when the attention you do not seek
rubs up against a tight pant crotch
that may tell them you indeed are the batty-man you
don’t want them to identify you as

singing sunday hymns in church
sanctifying the lord, batting an eye
at the upright standing pastor man
who was just but two minutes before the sermon
swallowing religiously a pound of flesh
shooting ammunition like waterfalls down his throat
and if you look really close
you can see a betraying white stickiness lodged mockingly
between the corners of his upper and lower lips

while your lips during the sermon part mysteriously
the heat of the church bench cajoling each labia to release
the sweat of the day caught unwillingly between your thighs
and all you can think of is her fingers fingering blasphemously
as you come inside of yourself

this renkin business of who is fucking who

blood-stained cutlasses angered by a devaluing dollar
while the speaker-boxes and the unruly live truly
to break all the rules that have ever been set for them

she refuses to squeeze into brassieres and mens arms
who squeeze her like lime between unimaginative fingers
hoping to ejaculate some promise of love and recognition
of masculinity

who here does not recognize that the boys need mothering
and the mothers need support

shells of masquerading manhood
protecting what little is left of self
but there is much left
except it takes a keen and knowing eye to see truth

i am tired of hypocrisy
he said she said jah said the bible said allah said

what do you say?

what about love?
