Different strokes for different folks:
Difficulties abound for a lonely Ori.
Let’s agree we will have no hope.
Let’s agree we will have no seed.
Let my fingers
strike your thorn
with a Cupid’s dart.
Let’s just be companions,
Let’s interlock hands and mouths
and dip into each others
Life is sweeter
with a companion of the heart.
