Are you gratuitous? I’m gratuitous –
silly dillies with no function.
Like light bulbs or dead tuna fish
we lack the least compunction

to confess our crimes. Yet here
you are and I am too.
Neither far away nor near
enough to do what we would do

if we’d had just a little style, or guile.
Let’s inspect each other’s
malformations for a while.
Then let’s talk about our mothers.
