Pleasures Of A Low Sex Drive

Low sex drive,

No sex drive,

Enjoying it,

The yearning, pining, longing gone,

Not missing it a bit.

Distracting thoughts,

One-sided thoughts,

Dissipated into thin, thin air,

Scattered and dispelled God-knows-where.

Who in heaven or hell cares?

Like losing fetters

That bound up mind, heart

(and other parts) for years.

What a delight

To have hormonal chains


All by themselves, fording

Oceans, seas and rivers

Of their own accord

To come to rest

Inside a calm and loving breast

That doesn’t give a hoot


A screw.

      It is immensely satisfying to not only get a comment, but a comment of approval about any of the unconventional and so-called problems I write about. When I’m amused or musing, or just plain observing, being a congenital poet I’m compelled to put the idea into artistic form. So thank you for the approval.

      The article was a perfect parallel to my poem – only in prose – and a bit more academically oriented. isn’t it nice that one only needs to live an honest life, be observan a little bold, artistic, with the need to share, and Bob’s your uncle!”, the result is ‘universal truth’. One of my collections is called “I Is Always You Is We.” This kind of symbioticism seems to confirm it.
