The side effects of sex

The knowledge that you had it
The sense of 'getting lucky'
The feeling in your loins
Of effort fused with ecstasy
Corny sex feet
The shower feels familiar
The pain is just the same
The pleasure keeps on changing
The name of the game

The sly sideways glance
Quick enough to catch
The memory fading fast
Dwarfed by the act

The side-effects of sex
Are sleeping in their beds
School in forty minutes
The rub of sweet success

Till the next sack-race comes
As sure as sound is sleep
A tense patience is found
The side-effects will keep


  1. And basking in the warm afterglow –thanking you, You...

  2. I thought you might say 'No comment...'
