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"

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
