led zeppelin never told you this but
the ascent is its own reward.
stairwells here too should be scrawled with
bawal umihi dito

but no one ever says
anything about the side effects
of being more fisted than fistula
in the midday,
unless it is grainy photos of moral decay
depicting yet another carpark roof coupling

is it being sick of being transient
that makes you hide all inclination
to hitchhike?

maybe Thumbelina
hid in lotuses
for a reason
