I eschew sex.romans

Firmly entrenched
now in middle age
I have found the act
wanting, boring

the physicality dull,
unimaginative
old hatDonQuixote and Dulcinea

Sex
has lost its interest
in me

shunning sex,
I have discovered
making lovepotterswheel

It is the side effect of
experience
the residue of having
love, lost, found

I am the artistplaydoh
who has traded Play-Doh
for the potter’s wheel

About poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
