DRY DREAMS
(1/27/16)


at first
the sudden absence
of the female form
hurts
through the days

haunts
through the nights

then
as the
months

years
pass

the circumstance
simply seems
a part
of the normal
routine

women
are still looked
upon
as attractive
beings

but desire
has been muted
by time

mornings
awaken to
more pressing
priorities
