On revelations

I am myself and my cousin
In bed with my cousin & his cousin
In the next bed is my brother Ed
He is my cousin, & his
Cousin Will is in bed with himself, his cousin
& his cousin myself. Our mothers
Who are sisters are cousins
And ours, and theirs
Sleeping across the gulley
From our Motel 6 room
At their mother's house
Their cousin's house.
