Body Against Light

I.

Here, pornography is clean yet threadbare:
       stores tucked behind blockbuster stalls
       or on the second floor.

Expose skin smooth but blur
       private parts to noise.
       Pixels turn to clothes.

II.

Tonight, a disappearing act.
       How to feign interest
       with a couple of bodies

huddled in a steam room. Breathe
       but keep lust to yourself
       covered with a thin towel.

III.

Silence is a giant monster shadowing
       the skyscrapers. Superheroes cry
       out underground, their frames possessed

by frenzying lights. If everything not saved
       will be lost, surrender these figures
       to their own darknesses.
