TWISTED LOGIC (TWO POEMS FOR THE ROAD)

TWISTED LOGIC
I was 80 then
And wrinkles drew lines on my flesh
My wife combed my grey hair
Then I turned 35
My marriage and the pleasure of consummation ravaged my mind
Our bodies gyrating in ecstasy
At 15, I entered high school
That was when I first met her
Under the old Maple tree
I am 5 months old now
And when I remember all these years
I sadly return to my mother’s sore nipples…
