The Ark of the Covenant

"You are a dead man, but I will not put you to death at this time, because you carried the Ark of my Lord God before my father David..."

- Kings I, 2:26

You crawled into that box,

three boxes, really,




and said

from the other edge of the bed

you hated your body

for what it could do.

(I had noticed you wore

turtlenecks and trench coats.)

When you crawled back out

I saw you were right.

Sex was a master

from Gei-bin-hinnam

and love was a slave

from New Jersey.

and you thought

I would tell you which one

was sat there

between the two of us?
