Siesta



joy at 4am expresses
more or less the special
way our singular and fey
relationship survives


you’re not a species
who’s endangered yet
the joyful play connives
agreeably while it explains


that sixties is an age
where raging as of right
against the gloom of
fading day suggests


despite the early hour
that sex invigorates
immensely – but it might
facilitate in clarifying how


and why our seniors
convey an avidly and
apt delight in sleeping
soundly at midday!
