the shadow of a thick neck with a head glides back and by on a see-saw
to watch monarchs mate 
or try to kill each other

hung over the couple to corral 
with the night made by the big body 
on concrete caused a tender couple throbs from under cotton

watching flashes of their black sticks combing
the other black sticks in magic, it must be
between two kinds of a feast
by the eager connected in abdomen

the shadow pulses with the forecast 
of the rock over their heads 
and only the pair of eyes above 
the see-saw neck knows whether love or cruelty will last
