The most exhausted theme
In Mature Aunt stories
Which, like an athlete well groomed,
Never exhausts; picks pace
To seduce and make way when the husband is
Ever-limp or uninterested; satiates its cause.
They never lose warm grip — even as the
Same same motif, with subtle variation,
A thousand times over, hundreds of servers
Ten thousand times and more, downloaded across the nation:
Ten thousand mothers swapped, exchanged and consumed,
Sites quarantined; fresh sites mushrooms open.
So, when you say you’re older, that your sons
Are now grown smart, in self-submitted subversion
You merely deny the art. Pick the tempo of your
Heartbeat as, at that age, you are watched;
Let it free flow and be absorbed when, in secret,
You are touched.
