YURI DURAAN Poems
Anyone Can Write About Sex
Anyone can write about sex...
It is like writing about the rain -
only being able to aptly describe it
if you have walked naked in a flood
with the rain beating down on you...
following the sensual flow of the water
down the road... down... down
and feeling the velvet drops on your skin
when you open your mouth to take the
water in... to feel the surge of it
wade through it with your body
your senses alerted to every change of
temperature where the imaginary stream
looking up and seeing nothing but ...
I am watching a man eating
at a restaurant.
He eats daintily,
carefully selecting his portions,
like an artist choosing his colours
before using it on canvas.
He does not see me watching him,
or knows that his eating inspires poetry...
