Left knee to queen’s bishop six:
the renowned Polish ploy to save the connubial chess.
And the Copernican does hypothesize
his private junction of X’s, Y’s:
Marriage is an intersection of curves;
ergo, we mate with the which who’s most available
at some point, A, where both wes’re most vulnerable.
Zen Mack Sennet monks tell this Pollack koan deep in the abbot’s office.
It ends with this punchline proverb:
“Within the novice virgin, nine months after she’s hit
with the-old-man-on-the-mountain’s holy stick,
wisdom is born.”
And the white bride glides down the stainless aisle
past pews of naked delicatessen racks
like a boiled swollen sausage
as she synchronizes he calendar and stopwatch.
“So now who says that the Kamasutra’s Polish Position is back/to/back?”
And the new kielbasa mama splits into a smile.
“I guess I took too serious what he only poked at me in fun.”
