My Sexual Proclivities

by alex kannis

I can only engage in

the act

while my wife is dressed in authentic American Civil War attire.

 

She must refer to me only as

“John Carter-Smith the Third”

during the act.

 

I have grown this beard especially for our sessions.

It is of authentic length and styling.

I stroke my chin

during

the act.

 

I own a large collection of authentic American Civil War-era weaponry

each, in turn, discharged

during

the act.

 

The act

is stilted

and difficult.

Alex Kannis is a writer, designer, and organises the bimonthly spoken word event Ships in the Night.
