Lay me down
Sumptuous covers, queen size bed
Scrumptious lover, cheeks brick-red
Pull me closer
You’ve won it

Online blog Epistemology
Cocktail bar Ethnography
Received your Master of Art and Science in Anthropology
A thousand names in your biography
Overqualified to explore my Biology

Desires orchestrated
Intimacy engineered
Don Giovanni
you rehearse daily

The well of thirst
overflows with angst
A recipe of insatiable void
paid in full with the soul
A modern Sisyphus
ticking off his to-do list

Here I am,
complicit in my capitulation
Roguelike with no destination
An abyss
of desire so deep
of despair so dark
You can’t resist but
Pick me up
