Flat white. We're here to be betrayed

by our bodies.

You used to think you're on the same boat.

Partners.

But you, you're a spaceship

fuelled by ancestral aspirations

and all the bits of love you gather

from your charging docks - people

you learn from, begin and end with,

grow and diminish next to.

Whereas your body lags behind.

A mere wooden boat, creaky and nervous,

full of holes

dressed in youth and

make-believe.
