SEX …Trilogy Part I
SEX … wondrous word once only whispered in
Polite society. And now? A billboard blast
Seducing every segment of our lives
With semen, sweat and sizzling orgies all
Enhanced by modern miracles of man’s
Technologies. When rapture’s lifeless, dulled
By repetition, we have “Ecstasy”
Or “Poppers” to enjoy synthetic bliss.
Our clothing’s even made to tweak and tease
Lust’s possibilities with leather skin.
It’s not a secret uplift bras are hot
Reminders of those childhood days when we
Milked pleasure suckling women’s breasts. Of course
For our eternal youth there’s surgery
And for those shrunken times when glands
Deny old dreams, Viagara’s chemistry
Can resurrect the dead to rise again.
SEX … sinful word when guilt confesses it
To fire-and-brimstone clergy. Painful word
When lying on a couch to analyze
The frauds and failures of relationship.
Disgusting word when innocence is raped.
Yet still the word that nature won’t reject
Since life will opt for immortality
To fill God’s cosmos with our human song.

Wonderful stuff! Sex is such a powerful thing...all-too-often misunderstood and misrepresented. It's also one of my favorite subjects simply because it's so wild, so untamable--like a cat refusing to be domesticated. I also find it amazing that for as much focus as American society has on sex, there's actually very little sex in it! What a paradox. We talk about talking about sex and call it sexy, and sometimes I wonder if we'd have more of it if we talked about it less...I mean, talking about something kinda eats into your time of doing it. I thought of that as I read your brilliant words. This is a well-written piece, and the subject matter is quite timeless. Great stuff.

Sex Trilogy? Isn't that called a three-way? The word is hypocrisy. We hate sex but can't get enough. It's disgusting but we watch it in our homes. And if we don't teach the kids they will never figure it out for themselves. And so it goes.
Another collection of masterfully arranged words bringing a messege that is sorely needed today.
