sex in the third person

Poet, Susan L. Daniels @SusanDanielsEden, was inspired by my post “Sex Objects Who Don’t Enjoy Sex” to write this poem. Thank you Susan.

if I and you
shifted to she and he
when we should be
just us

lost in the heat
of this we

there would be no
true union
just she
filtering feeling
through a camera lens

a voyeur
assessing performance
from across the room

Susan L Daniels is a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically–or why bother with any of it?
