Labyrinthine vases compare to vasectomies
in several surprising ways
none of which will be covered in the duration
of this exchange

We have carpets to discuss, or
if you rather, rugs.
This is not to say that the carpet-rug is a problem,
rather that it is a problem for me.

Some day-laborers have agreed
to some overtime work this evening
just so that you and I can enjoy each other
without this god damn rug here

(they are also being paid double).
With the carpet gone, we will talk
about the space created and the limits
of our fancy deported

as if murdered and rolled up with the rug
in the van behind me, because it is behind me,
that rug. Then we will consider the limitation,
the many-plurality of limitations

that the carpet imposed, and ask ourselves
if there is possibility for creativity without limitation?
The rug comes back and I know
it isn’t worth it—

Shakespeare isn’t worth this rug,
yet we bring it back, together.
And I wonder if you are the real rug,
if the carpet I loathe has always been you.
