Oy

OY,
hollow men,
women they think
about, men they dream
about, hollowness that
entails.

OY,
wondering
of the wounded, auctioning
of the offered, gendering
of the neutered, continuity
that entails.

OY,
sallow fish, waters
they try, barking tides
they cry, hooks
of schoolmates sigh,
bubbling black
oils
on their tails.
