Intimate Accommodation

The boyfriend, disabled in mind
and body, required an aide when
calling upon his similarly bestowed

girlfriend, in the event he had a seizure,
guaranteeing the impossibility of privacy.
So, if the lovers became intimate, and a spasm

arose from the depths of the defect
and overcame that provoked
by affection and touch, help must arrive

from the couch in the living room,
administer the absolutely necessary
medicine even after the possible little death
