Seminally Explained

new-age lesbian

wine stains
cabernet merlot I guess
on the desk where dust
accumulates and I write

the one an excess
the other a Sapphic
expression seminally explained
in grains too small to reason with
but no less an influence
on thoughts of a friend
obsessed with not
getting any

won’t let dust rest
believes declaring disillusionment
with one-sided abstinence
validates trading places as a
strap-on making inroads
into monastic celibacy with
his born-again ‘coming out’
as a new-age lesbian
