I construct nothing without first tearing
it down. My body's the sum of everyone's
parts. I do hope you won't begrudge sharing
your heart. Not that I care: half of the fun's
in begging forgiveness. I laminate
your private thoughts and post them on my wall.
I've always found it better to come late,
ill-dressed, than never to show up at all.
I've so far declined the experts' advice
concerning long-term palliative care
of my parents. I'm a dog for this vice,
my soft spot for anything counter and quare.
