972 Our New Occupation 03-10-,

My wife and I are newly apprenticed

to learn

the hum of my electric current,

to learn

to restore the fraying wire

running from my ever-ready mind

down to my disconnected dick,

lusting to rise,

but,

in need of the spark.

We are learning to finger-twist the split-ends,

twist and tight-tape the tips,

re-connect and re-flick

the switch,

over and over,

and,

(here’s the trick!),

hope.
