Selected Writings

..... ...14 years later

Watermelon comes to mind
the vivid red brilliance
the black seeds glistening
the dripping juiciness
yes this is what comes to mind

How could one not be enticed
by the rich textures
.....the ripe colors
.....the rare fragrance of your fruit

How could one not be distracted

Yours is the body I first made love to
.....without hesitation
.....without censorship
.....without my mind getting in the way

Yours is the body that made perfect sense

The yes
...the yes of course
...loving women is the most natural thing in the world.
