Contemplations at Evening in a Missouri Supermarket Parking Lot

They’re paired up

Coupled up

All over the land

Man slid in woman

Woman in man


Mostly they’re chunky

Heavy with fat

But the flesh it is humming

Murmurous in that


Lying down gently

All over the land

Man lies in woman

Woman in man


In shifting sheets sighing

Hugging in close

The couples are lying

Content or morose


Forgetting the daytime

And all it has brought

Time now for sleeping

And sleepy-soaked thought


Joined and clasping

All over the land

In each house a woman

Pulled close to a man.
