Between Sheets|Allan Lake|Poetry

We’ve never conceived

anything poetic together

but we do love to sperm

and egg each other on.


Post composing, we repose on net.

A safe house after committing

transgressions on clean sheets

of paper or on-line equivalent.


Virgin ‘vellum’ is ravished,

re-ravished, used, bruised,

routinely refused – but

neither of us lacks gall.


I show her mine; she shows

me hers. We spy on each other’s

searing verses, moan with-

out restraint or regret.
