Online Dating Profile

man seeking an aphorism —
a catchy little chestnut to widen some eyes
to giggle in the folds of a dress,

a phrase that admits defeat
and cringes at sympathy.

a subject line that says
i am part of it now,

i am the goat eating from my own
salty palm —

the old lump in the chest
time like a tube in my throat
an accidental erection

the yawning wet
the catheter plunges for.
