from The Sex Issue

Inspired by H., poet and friend

There is this tale men bear
that boys never hear

It really should be told
everyone old
enough to have learnt
the pleasure not usually taught
for which many of our souls in hell rot

An old friend told
of how the Creator
found perfection in made man
then angered somewhat
thought of a hex
and blessed man with sex

He smiled back heavenwards
the hunger and thirst sucking man up
the better
to drink of the pleasured well
of v’s heavenly hell

Urges to be heard
monsters to be fed
The rod
takes the place of our Lord

This is one grim tale you would never hear him
tell his child…

At the tale’s end, he smiled
the burden aging him somewhat sore
till the pleasure released him once more.
