Romance Today

Romance today
has too many questions
come here often
married (optional)
have you been tested
did you come
call me
and no kind answers

Romance today
is all bullshit and fancy dances
like fencing minus the foils
parries and feints and counters
to say nothing of the thrusts
It’s boxing with a different type of glove
in a different type of ring
you feel the blows
you feel the ache
you want the release
you know you do

Romance today is
fingers locking
loins pounding
bodies arching
letting the fluids fly
which brings us to the wet spot
not comfortable is it
you’re there, I’m there, we’re there
faces of need in an ocean of need
or wishing you were

Romance today is a game
care to play
