PRETTY PACKAGES
(9/25/12)


we see
them

we lust
after them

you'd
think
that we'd
learn

but still
we chase
the beautiful
face

the biceps
and the
bulge

the tits
and the
ass

even
when
we know
better

after
the wrapping
comes off
and the climaxes
are reached
we know
that we will be
left
with bellies
and belches

flab
and farts

other
unidentifiable
odors

beyond
the physical
we discover
the habits
and conversation
which we never
anticipated

we relegate
ourselves
to a growing
numbing
routine
of relationship
with diminishing
degrees
of the sex
and passion
that originally
fused
these body
bombs

we know
these things

but still
we get wet

we get hard

at the sight
of strange

we want it

we need it

we obsess
over it

return us
to the caves
from whence
we came

let us
eat
sleep
fight
and fuck
as our genes
decree

let us
die early
and often
of violence
and disease
as we roll
around
in each
other

let
the flora
and fauna
regain free run
of this planet

we had
our chance
