Fragments of a Formerly Active Sex Life



Blind men still care for their women’s beauty.
by Julian X  /  poetry  /  27 Apr 2008

Blind men still care for their women’s beauty.

You’d think they’d -- at least! at last! -- be free.

But no, they ask their friends more desperately than ever.

Any man -- the most independent of men,

the most unique in his tastes -- feels his heart

sink or sing when he gets the judgment.

We live and die by the average of those friendly numeric ratings.

It must be easy to lie to those blind men who,

barely out of the just-departed girl’s earshot,

ask “is she sexy?” as if it ought to matter.

But it never ought to matter, and it always does.

Think what you will, women, but have compassion.

Letters to Aphrodite:
I Want to Fuck like 9/11
Yes, Angel
This body I give, she says,
I returned from the wars sixteen years ago
femme sans assez d’espace
Lucretia
Rodrigo and Cesare Borgia
Death raped her,
Blind men still care for their women’s beauty.
I've never come as hard as when
