two-timers

infinity is a woman
you can hear it
when she sings
she lives inside me
she longs for me
to spread my wings
she is the mother
the power
behind all things
she is the sustainer
there is no limit
no inhibition
on her wellsprings

the infinitive is a man
you can feel it
in his heat
the sweat of reality
the seasoning
of our meat
the release of victory
the anti-climax
of defeat
he is the father
of our needs, to
drink, to eat –
he is the engine
driving our heartbeat

Sorree the Swashbuckler expounding his understanding of nature, time, and gender to young Verali as they journeyed south from Pasos Wadya towards Saymudin.
