Ménage à Deux

Ménage à Deux

written by: Ken Gosse

 

What they do together, in twos or in threes,
in fours, fives, or sixes, upright or on knees,
reclined or bent over, before or behind,
on top or beneath, each position will find
its rhythm and tempo, unique pas de deux
(trois, quatre, cinq, six, in case there’s more than teux),
its music accompanied by sing-along,
its noises becoming some kind of a song;
few words, mostly panting and grunting and groans,
foul language, some shouting, and some quiet moans—
at least, that’s what movies will show us they do.
For me? I prefer when it’s just me and you.
