NOT THINKING

A Rengaccio between Alexis K. Rotella and ai li
Los Gatos, California and London
18 - 19 February 1997

 

 

Not thinking
I curtsy to
the drag queen.

 

mother in a tight western perm
staring at her first negro

 

lost in each other's eyes
her straw goes up her nose

 

white wedding
the bride wears menses

 

In the psychiatrist's office
strong smell
of sperm.
