Lawd Moncktn


So righteous is my denial
no daylight or reason can sway
and no attempt to corrupt via semen

since I won't even start to get hard where it counts,
because hardness is confined to my brain
and you can tell a hard brain that it's mad,
tell it again and again and again.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
