Five Malfunctions for Max

And a Vogel Sang in Victoria Square


To describe the sexual act with a friend
is hardly decent, said the detective.
It’s not cricket in Bradman’s own state.
Genitals connotes incestuousness, he,
(not knowing what that meant) avowed.
There is more than a suggestion of indecency
about it, he claimed. Let my white swan of quietness
lie quiet, then, in the black swan’s breast. And
offer your wrists to be manacled for my arrest.
