LOOKING BACK

Looking back
he saw his tail on fire.
It's as if she
is on the second page,
and he's on the third page,
and they have passed each other
in the twilight of their years;
further complicating
what should have been,
what could have been.
Or, even if their mating
is on equal terms:
Terminating all the
proceeding pages.

Pass the gravy.

hot blood flowing
through a cold reservoir.



born for it
born into it
born with no regard
who, whom or what
was born before it
or why birth
was born so late
and filled
with so much hate
