  Interview
     
 
COMING INTO THE COLD
 
My mother
liked other women
but she loved the church
whose alter
was her feast.
 
My father
might have liked other women too!
but the sacrament of marriage
corralled
and chained the beast.
 
There was a cold light at my birth!
Does an orgasm
feel like death
to you?
