Fragments of a Formerly Active Sex Life

A Question For Monet
by Sean Garcia  /  poetry  /  4 Dec 2007

I wonder if they feel,

Your lilies floating blithely down the river,

Like princesses lazy and graceful,

Love in the current's warm embrace,

Or whether it's all the same to them,

Sunshine or storm,

Coming to rest in a pool of shimmering blossoms,

Or getting stuck,

Left to rot on the muddy banks,

Indifferent commuters along a waterway

They don't much care for, anyway.
