Two poles of personality arose in you today –
erections whose eruption caused
a bit of sway and wobble in your equilibrium:
one could not stop saying what it thought:
the other seemed abstractly caught
in an impenetrable silence. They mixed
uneasily, unfeasibly, yet you -- on balance –
managed not uncomfortably to go on. Strange
their co-existence didn’t cause you more alarm.
Perhaps, in fact, they’d settled on a pact.
Complete dissociation may, for them,and you, have had some charm.
