bestiary commented on the word symphonic approximation
thanks to king missile, of "detachable penis" fame:
I will slur, and heel, and hem and haw..
I will eat a monkey paw..
when you call me up, and command me to come over to your house
for sex and tea biscuits..
I shall clandestinely drop my cummerbund down the dumbwaiter chute.
Lutes will serenade us like liquid lemonade,
you will glisten, like newborn snow,
and I will listen, like a clairvoyant nipple clamp.
It will be sex like nobody has ever had it before in the history of postmodern lovemaking:
It will be sex, even if it isn't
It will be sex, even if only in theory
Even if it's only pantomime
Even if it's just a memory, or a dream
or a symphonic approximation..
after a summer of autonomous sodomy and National Geographic specials
about pretty animals that use other little animals as food
by eating them, on television..
But we shouldn't even watch television!
We should just have sex:
toe-tapping, Joseph Papping sex —
Shakespeare-in-the-park kind of sex!
D-train-ride-to-Coney-Island-vacation kind of sex!
Clandestine-in-the-airplane-lavatory kind of sex!
Olympic marathon sex!
All the different ways that we feel like having sex, we should
until we grow old, and bored, and disillusioned*.
Then, let us rekindle our feelings,
forget our despair and our celibate nonsense,
and do it like bunnyrats 'til the cows come home to roost.
So call me sometime, and let's have sex.
*misused! but we'll forgive them.
