Making love is not unlike
a restful vacation.
Somewhere there are church bells,
flowers of practical impartiality.
Grass cuttings spread like immigrants
around the vaguest of garden borders.
To sit for how long on this stone bench?
Best to time your shadow's defense
before airlifting casualness.
The shade is only partially ideological
simulacrum sunglasses a must.
Colin James has a couple of chapbooks of poetry published. Dreams Of The Really Annoying from Writing Knights Press and A Thoroughness Not Deprived of Absurdity from Piski’s Porch Press and a book of poems, Resisting Probability from Sagging Meniscus Press.
