Theme X: Love & Sex, “The Uses of the Body”

By Tia Ramos

The uses of the body have become simple and sleepy.

Missionary, doggy, missionary, spooning.

 

The uses of the body

still keep me up at night

 

as I feel my brain in my fingertips

like a bent nail

 

when I realize that you

are my only solution

 

to an End of Suffering.

The uses of the body

 

are to suffer and to sleep.
