The Listening Lover

            The Listening Lover👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨
I asked myself today
As if I were inquiring of someone else,
“What is a lover you’d call good?”
Myself made references to what it knows.
The answer came in one small phrase
Hovering over any other;
It was this: the listening lover.
Not athletic, active, virile,
Not a grunter with no smile.
This: a listener
That moves untaught with every signal,
Sensing, waiting, holding back, until
With intuition honed,
What body’s pulse has telephoned,
A glistening outcome follows up;
Nature’s own sweet lollipop:
The consequence of listening.
