The Promiscuity




We contaminate each other with every interaction.
This is normal. This is necessary.
Love is filthy. Hate is foul.
But indifference is a forsaking
forbidden to the Promiscuity we call life,
a suicidal sterility invoking the Annihilation.
Kisses, soiled embraces, cohabitation, speech.
With contact and communication, we seethe.
