Unitary Pleasures: Masturbating in Space

1 November 2014

The day Apollo traded his pipe for an appearance on the
Eurovision Song Contest: “Living on Borrowed Time.”
Absolutism isn’t the solitary pursuit it once seemed.
Out of hours, display receipt. There’re other words for con-
tainment
, she said, but none of them fit the way you do.
We used to go down to the border & look at El Salvador,
faint memories of a Golden Age. Forty years in the wilderness
& this’s all they’ve got to show for themselves?

Her granddad was on the Kent State firing squad.
Later they built vertical ghettos to the moon –
“cash-for-chaos” package deals to the dark side
(EVERYTHING’S PERMITTED
BECAUSE NOTHING’S POSSIBLE).
And all that, knowingly, in full view of their god.
