Efficacious Coupling

that's what you want to be
something that fits into me or into somebody

to together make something complete
instead of existing or thriving to compete

there are those, too many these days, who,
instead, until dooms day just want to compete

On the bus Stop On Bay Street

hips that indicate a healthy appetite
hips in tight jeans, hugging, clinging

how she fills them out: how she fills them up


remains in the earth, all that is left of her

in spite of being aware that
we shall all end interred- end in dirt
it is still shocking

sister on mine, dead and buried
how defiant she always was
