Erotic or Neurotic

Certain subjects are considered write-aboutful
in poems, where
others somehow have doubtful
homes there

Love is universally eulogized
sex is frowned upon as not-quite-nice
and while thighs are swooned over as delightful
what’s between them is regarded as frightful


Modern theory’s just rediscovered
that some things look better when they’re covered
which makes them cheap and deep at the same time
both ridiculous and sublime
yet some lewd thoughts still persist in me
perhaps romance and porn co-exist in me
