Cave Canem: A Special Section

We are still in an ice age. Saturday morning, Museum of Natural History

with a man twice my lover, twice my ex-lover. Ice ages are rhythmic,

marked by periods of warmth and cold, partly ruled by geographies breaking or coming


     Who knows,

our guide questions, when the Earth will cool again? In two hours

we will begin making love on the small sofa. One of us will stop. One will continue. We will

both stop, pull away, start, stop again, stuff our cocks into

our shorts, brew the mint tea bought at market, let it steep.
