Next Life’s Gender, Sweetheart

Accountants have a great deal to unlearn, when it comes to a spiritual tallying of relationships…

the karma of ladies,
gentlemen
that of men, women
and you thought the cosmos
was humorless

drinking deep
your generous faucet
I’ve the feeling
we’ve seen this
before

now who was the taker
who play-acts a giver
dissolving all meaning
when incarnations alternate

it’s the currency
what oscillates
in one era, pleasure
perhaps another,
ministering

what yardstick measures sacrifice
when gods both lofty
and corrupted
collaborate this masterpiece

so call me the lesser
should it lighten your mood
I touch you
with more than
flesh finger

we can’t yet dishonor
soul’s engineered future
and you pictured destiny
so non-magnetic
