XI


50% of reality
or an apple
or box
or part of the code
or gender
or nothing at all

people are god's hobby said Margaret boxes
full of bones rolls and rolls of skin he
just keeps making them

tall slim dark
short stocky pale
the same old macramé

a worm's idea of the sea
rivalling a river
ploughing through the storm
where time's daughters
grasp at wasps
and break into bleak laughter

vergent di/con

just to keep making and unmaking them

if women have ovaries she asked
do men have underies?

anxious fuchsia ocean
