DIVORCED OF THE DOG

It is without needing the farmer,

that all these things

are about to be warned off

the rogering time and the useful

views of you

who do not know

when to say no.

It is without the use of the limbs and feet that

all the dances

encumber you with seances

of numb and need.

That is the way they all see it

to be able to make it here

is not to be able

to make it there

in the tree-lined suburb of Johannesburg

where they all ask

what to do with their useless

dogs called

man and woman

of earthly presence and not foul

named beings of youth

like you and me.
