A PREDISPOSITION FOR EUPHEMISM

by Colin James

Making love is not unlike
a restful vacation.
Somewhere there are church bells,
flowers of practical impartiality.
Grass cuttings spread like immigrants
around the vaguest of garden borders.
To sit for how long on this stone bench?
Best to time your shadow’s defense
before airlifting casualness.
The shade is only partially inclusive.
What’s the rush? The sun is dust.
