_Thanks for your sound advice
Sometimes the imagination is such
it reaches heights reality can't touch.
And so I do not think that I should choose
to go to bed with my attractive Muse.
I'll take some advice from a fellow man
And resist the temptation if I can.
But the flesh is weak and easily led
and still may try to get her into bed.
(written in response to a comment on Erato - the Muse of love poetry.)
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Comment: Never take a Muse as lover
They lay still beneath the covers
They surely stiffen at your touch
They do not like the body much;
They prefer to be cerebral
Their bodies boney and quite feeble;
Approach her with a reverent mind,
And don't touch her on bare behind
