It Is A Sweet Reward

I imagine making
love before I sleep –
it is a sweet reward,
a gift alone complete
and free of promises.

No artifice or cheap
derivatives deceive
libido, the package is
a neatly wrapped
placebo for the deed

and sleep ensues
without the need
debated or potentia
coeundi ever
comsummated.
