NAPUSWRIMO: Day 4 of 30 Days of Pussy & Poetry



OKCupid, an online dating site, provides questions to match potential mates. 



Have you ever tasted your own sexual fluids?

severing these plays, these fiery gaits
oh echoing madly, then etching wide as
or long as, this body of green sea
aswirl, a masking you could cooperate
blinding conducive or confirmed a losing
he’s a simple anagram of forward/ backward
timing & only you could make it more complicated
let go to the point of possible
a reminder of endly the same, you just
put it to bed another & then again
hold on to the reflection of the reflection 




If your 9 year old daughter was begging you to wear a thong, what would your response be?

remember when playing back the way an echo loops 
so that each cheek blossoms when you rush
into longing that seems like it would be adult
but then you simply never
once the way to learn anything was a gaggle
girls in their undersea anemones
all arms a type of poisoning to those not
initiated to the rub: you lied about the blood
you had and the blood you didn't 
the first time you come 
there is repulsion tinged with wonder
sex is no different; it's the way out of this
and into another
