i once spoke with a poetry enthusiast

bless the poor bastard

who had analyzed my verse

and he suggested in his bulging insight

that my routine use of hypereroticism

indicated a certain repressed sexual insecurity

on the part of the speaker


and so

scrambling to mask my trembling virginity

with a wry grin

i suggested to the analist

that he might give it another go

and that if he kept at it


he might be able to go a little deeper
