Think about sex and death…the universe required to sustain them.
Think about sex the way you do, every ten seconds,
then think about death. Imagine the universe without them –
it simply disappears,as if the big bang were a rumor
spread about someone’s sister and her sex, or death.
When she walks into the room it goes hushed,
and she knows, she thinks “sex, death” and a universe is born.
