Strange desires


One can't be a man
Without having strange desires
To sleep in a mother-of-pearl shell
At the bottom of the sea
To swim and dive
In a drop of morning drizzle
To take a delicate snail by the horns
Ride electrons
In their befuddled orbits
Or send an e-mail to Jesus Christ for Christmas
To smoke with the pipes of volcanoes
To untwist the reddish hair of comets
Have sex with a cachalot whale
Play golf with stars and black holes
And put on your beloved’s finger
One of Saturn's rings
One can't be a man
Without having these desires
You die
The desires remain
Keeping the human race alive
