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 starved and lost 10 kilos because you said
I was fat.
You did not acknowledge it because it was not
Absolute goal weight.
I trained and ran 21 kms because you said
I was lazy.
You did not acknowledge it becauase it was not the
Ultimate Human Race.
