Poem - The Rumors

The poem “The Rumors” is about the “rumors of distant wars”, with the stated conflicts being replaced by those enjoying sexual relations.


The Rumors

The rumors hint of intercourse
pursued by a joyous world
interactions pressed to flesh
while the actors are undressed

these plays enacted outside of scene
while on the stage close to hand
the opposite is fated as if in jest
with soliloquy the only script

liaisons of the distant past
evoke the memories that surpass
the dusty platters supped instead
in the emptiness of the day

still hearing tales of contact
coitus taken with longing gasps
even as this listener seeks
to state the rumors when they speak.
