New Cells

I don’t want to write about how I feel about my body or sex

vaginas cocks clits g-spots anal blow jobs threesomes moresomes

polyamory monogamy love loss boredom heartbreak crushing

New rushing oxytocin snatch smack and long-lost love

unrequited devastation, infidelity, jealousy, endings

I have been blind and deaf with new love

I understand the strangeness

of other people’s choices

a blinding beauty Tuesday, this week

a cringing embarrassment Friday next

every breath a chance to start over

all new cells in your whole body

every 7 years
