A PERVERT BY ANY OTHER NAME...
(10/1/14)


I watch
my neighbor
across the street
stretched out
on her porch
swing

she's a divorced
single mom

I think
of her
naked
in front
of me

I've been
told
by other women
that they think
just as much
about sex
as men

I wonder
what my neighbor
thinks about
as I stand
at my window
lost
in libidinous
thought

perhaps
a man

perhaps
a woman

perhaps
a cat

I really
don't know
her
well enough
to guess

probably
she thinks only
of her son's
dirty room

I turn
back
into my
dirty room

lower myself
to the floor
for more
pushups

soon
I shall be
too exhausted
to lust

at least
until I catch
my breath
again
