subtle transformations

you do not know what you are missing

by your

microscopic examination of sexual activity

to the exclusion

of aspects

which are

fuel that ignites it

intellectual,

imaginative,

romantic,

emotional.


this is what gives sex

its surprising textures,

its subtle transformations,

its aphrodisiac elements.


you are shrinking your world of sensations.

you are withering it,

starving it,

draining its blood.
