Sex Ed.

I am a veteran of your foreign war
just like money or settles to score
I implore to let go of two more
so I can or may, give back to the poor
fighting over maps and directions
she flogs my wisdom and looking/finding skills
by pinching my thigh

with blinding reflection
she’s a fruit in big bird shoes
quoting primal attraction to same sex Jews

like an endless supply of sperm
Elmo may learn that external genitalia
is something not to seek
or just something to learn
especially within tenets set
through heads of Lutheran Schools

finding much more than
looks under dresses for risqué peeks
burning fever bush looks like Oscar the Grouch
in the trash she learns of all the she needs
those infertile and fat pouches
bleeding hearts growing downtown
soft like sodden ground
