I’ve been through all the vices & now don’t have any
Marc Almond

Let coitus & narcotics take a back seat
[there is always time on your deathbed]
Sip tea with your feet put up or commit
to an indoor religion – Quakerism offers
mute reflections out of Sunday AM rain
Masturbation requires creative thought
so relieve not with rapid wanks but with
poetry / Repeat episodes of Morse can
offer a beat for those who like unlawful
acts & a sprinkling of crossword clues –
there ain’t no cure for love – dependence
[on somebody else] rarely ends too well
