~ Linda Ronstadt

"Sex, as they harshly call it,/I fell into this morning/at ten o'clock, a drizzling hour/of traffic and wet newspapers./I thought of him who yesterday/clearly didn't/turn me into a hot field/ready for plowing,/and longing for that young man/pierced me to the roots/bathing every vein, etc./All day he appears to me/touchingly desirable,/a prize one could wreck one's peace for./I'd call it love if love/didn't take so many years/but lust too is a jewel/a sweet flower and what/pure happiness to know/all our high-toned questions/breed in a lively animal."
