When David Foster Wallace said that
fiction is about what it is

to be a fucking human being,
he probably didn’t intend to insinuate

coitus is the principal occupation
of the imagination, but may have:

narrative, after all, loves the twilit
entanglement as much as anyone,

and the way the votive gyroscope
of a moving mind compresses

into the white-sheeted ordeal of a book
is, perhaps, like the flowers

later pressed between its pages,
finally sensual in nature.

Kevin Heslop is a poet and actor from London, Ontario.
