Sexuality and cholesterol
She is sitting
Half naked
In the Sun
Smiling up at him
Even if he is not
Down on her
He’s forking
Glissery bacon
Between his glissery lips.
Later, his wife
Will smear white fat
From the pan
Over her tits
And he will not
Notice that
Nor the skin-tight weariness
She wears while bending
To put this
Another parcel
Into the bin.
The North
