Sexualizing Christ on the Cross


“and why not say so? You see, griping comes naturally
to me and to all mankind. Once, when shut up
at the bottom of a shaft of some kind, I
assumed that the world would just trickle naturally”
— John Ashbery

Let’s go back to your place?
Implies a need to be witnessed
And notarized; sexual, congratulatory,
Childish, the buried bones
Of some magnificent gun-toting species
Pitched toward erotic banality, then,
Speed-date market demand, bond issue
Blind dates, swipe right commodity trades.

We spread wide
The lips of earth
Live a little wilder.
