My Ass in Love

Jay Pabarue

with a line from Tomaž Šalamun

My ass is going to the polls
My asss is vaulting on the poles
My assss is questioning the polls
My asssss is grass or the high watermark
My asssssss is conscious of its cheeks
My assssssss is taking my ass seriously
My asssssssss is taking my ass back to botany school
My assssssssss is gonna grow all my food
My asssssssssss is gonna split out these genes
My assssssssssss, soft as my head is hard
My asssssssssssss is staying in to learn its own history
My assssssssssssss is staying healthy this winter
My asssssssssssssss is staying healthy this spring
My assssssssssssssss in summer is such a mediterranean rock, you could broil a steak on it
My asssssssssssssssss rolls up sorrowful & late again for tuba practice
My assssssssssssssssss spilled the news about who’s dating who
My asssssssssssssssssss is sorry, a sorry ass
My assssssssssssssssssss needs somebody, quick, and so
my asssssssssssssssssssss gazes into rocky spaces and
my assssssssssssssssssssss sees new life clattering up
and my asssssssssssssssssssssss steps gingerly around a line of berry-ferrying ants
My assssssssssssssssssssssss is more than figment
My asssssssssssssssssssssssss is on pins and needles
but my assssssssssssssssssssssssss isn’t sleeping, it’s in love
Oh my asssssssssssssssssssssssssss will wake up early for your ass
My asssssssssssssssssssssssssssss gets kissed under the lamplight, kisses back
