Half Drunk Muse Poetry


sex by Larry Kerschner

is sometimes a fresh poem
to be bandied about
like words

sex is
a story
written yesterday

sex is
the flower vendor’s voice
like cigarette smoke
from the plaza
to snare
an early morning dream

sex is
the wet lips
of your friend’s mouth

only love
spends without regard
to a bottom line
