The Great Depression, Alleviated by Robert Beveridge

The Great Depression, Alleviated

His fingers inside you, mine
against that perfect nub,
the last breakwater overwhelmed
as the river crashes
into the driest of gullies,
hammers you time and again
with the perfect tides, high,
neap, high, neap, run together
into one perfect orgasm, endless
for as long as it lasts. Your dam
burst long ago, yet still every
new crest is an experience
to be relished, a pleasure beyond
any before, water from the Earth’s
core overflowing the highest banks.
