The Husband

When he is deep inside her suddenly she sees
what he is doing: he is like a man in a mineshaft

clay walls wet, tracks
fading into the distance

he carries a weak flashlight
peers forward

What is he doing?
Is he afraid of snakes?

No, he is seeing the other man,
the rival, the brother, the father, the God.
