There was a moment today,

In that half-dressed second between

Sitting and standing

In the company restroom, when

I realized

The vagina is nothing, really,

But a pulsing, clenching organ designed

Exclusively

For sex

And reproduction.

And for a moment, I thought to myself

Maybe,

Then, Iā€™d rather

Not

Have one.

 

So I suppose that

Can be my answer ā€“

I am asexual.

 

But there are times, still

When the pulsing,

Clenching,

Grinding,

Taking, dragging, throbbing, aching, pounding, shattering

Spirit of it all

Has its charm to me, too.

 

When I will accept

A thing that is

Nothing

But

Sex.
