Plain American Language

I cut a sliver/of WC William's finger
and placed it inside/my philosophy...

Apologies for the grossness of this poem...for those who can't read anything about my own body, please avert your eyes...

(This is unfinished, no title as of yet...)

Naked again, looking into the mirror,
just mystified by the curve
your pregnant (man's) belly makes
(the chest, a bit large to call them pecs)
but mostly that dive downward
that impressive hill leading into the forest
and outward to the cliff.
(Is that what a Jewish penis always looks like?)

Our body is a long curve,
isn't it? And yet that's what, supposedly,
interests us men: curves, the voluptuousness
of a bottom lip, the hip
curve enough to place a hand,
something to rest on
that suddenly your fingers
grow, widen like a dilated pupil

(here's where it's unfinished...ideas??)
