The Poor Man's Science Fiction

Since I have lived in isolation
porn has been more of a temptation
to me than I expected them to be.
At times it has felt as if sexual images
were some sort of odd proof of life,
an infinite intimate engagement.

If I wish to resist the images
I have to learn to believe
that the reduced language
and tiny palate of ideas
of engineered submission
and physicality of 'power'
is science fiction for people
who don't want to read
who have ceased to want
to be spoken for.
