BEGGARED

IT IS THE BEAST WE ARE RELUCTANT TO CONFRONT

& WE ARE BEGGARED BY IT

1976  demure bride   Now cool hipstergirls

in lace shorts+tie dye offer me their seats on

the ttc   Statistically they are unlikely to marry

 

Time unglues us   Brain-tricks us    Confuses

You get to do this once  or do you?  Multiversers

would stop the poem right here +tell you:  that

Other Life   the one with the 22 yr. old husband

is being lived by you on  the Other Earth

 

Here  rot-skin   bone-pain    & a planet with a rough

heart-shaped mass is blinking at us   The true nature

of this feature  is not yet known  says NASA    Such a

romantic rorschach result  for a species enamoured of

the abyss

 

So is the Other Earth like this?   Or do the young couple

stay young   have 3 children   in a world where no child

is a prized sex-slave?   Rot-skin  Brain-tricked   Look away

from the un-bearable   & smile
