sex in the third person

if I and you
shifted to she and he
when we should be
just us

lost in the heat
of this we

there would be no
true union
just she
filtering feeling
through a camera lens

a voyeur
assessing performance
from across the room
***inspired by a post from BroadBlogs.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
