Barely clothed beneath their clothes
They pash, his baseball cap nudging
Her pinned purple black fringe;
The bus lurches, and with a slack grin
His face falls into her lap 
Below the Plimsoll Line of skirt
And stays there till every neck
Aches from arching: She giggles,
At what, when there are so many choices,
And he resurfaces all out of breath
Gasps and suckers to her mouth and 
They don’t take breath for a full stop.

When the cosmos is nothing
But a drifting black hulk, 
A celestial Marie Celeste,
Those mouths will still be kissing
Blithely ignoring the departed god 
Allegedly behind it all, 
In whose name priests forbade 
The eating of meat of a Friday and 
The meeting of lips in a pubic place.
