Inimitable Intimacy


He's that kind of boy
That makes a true ode to beauty
Out of me
Even when I'm ugly

He indulges me
Into skillful foreplay
Which can take about an hour or so
If we are in the mood

And his perversions
-- such as his dubious attraction to young girls
Seem nothing to me but brand new affection styles
For today sensuality is spared and love rules

And I've heard that Shakespeare
Would have wanted to photograph us
To appear
In the front cover of
"Two Lover's Inimitable Intimacy"

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
