  57.     

Falseness close to Kin

After three half-hearted, vain abortion efforts came
the mutual punishment of birth and the tight
pretence of my Adoption. Then you failed
to force me in the painful mould
of your own image, uncommunicating, cold.
Still, we have been faithful to each other:
rebel son and secret mother.
I'm getting old, and you're ever more stubborn.
You think that I have failed you,
and can't remember when last you ate.
We were hardly in each other's knowing -
now my half-respect for you has turned to emptiness
almost dispassionate.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  58.     

Fishermen

Urinals are strange places
where men stand
like itinerant sweet-peas
against temporary trellises
and fumble.

Men are lucky.
They can stand while they piss
and play cards or violas
or kiss.

When I was a child
high toilet-walls
were greenly-defiled
by years of competitions:
boys
raising litre by metre.

Men are lucky.
They can stand while they piss
and angle for strange fish

like St. Peter.

  59.     

Flames upon the Night

Christians destroyed the Oracles
not because the Sibyls lied
but because the uncouth
New Testamenters
wanted The Good News

and couldn't bear the truth.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  60.     

fOr mEn OnLy?

Sex is much wider, deeper
without penetration. It is much more
]subtle without ejaculation or even
orgasm. Best of all is the exquisite
cultivation of friendships with men
or women or animals or trees
who excit you sexually
but with whom there is no possibility of sex.
