My Stargate of Sexualities

by David William Parry about a year ago in surreal poetry
Report Story

A Truly Colorful Poem

As a teenager astonished by starry tales,

I became a Manichaean fractal remoulded by Light

Which illuminated my stargate of sexualities;

Or rather a rightful continuum of love and flesh

Instead of being a merely binary Being

Who admired Green muscle on attractive Jovians

Like a real alternative to a Black or White fandom

That involved no shades of alien desire

While passing through bodily antinomies.

So, between such relativities as birth and death

And truth and religion and time and conscience,

Which surrounded my passion inside others,

I learnt through magazines recounting marvels

To question who we said we were in ourselves

Amid naked heroes, romantic monsters and ethoxy ethics

Exciting an intoxicated, palpable, breath

About my Stargate of Sexualities

While passing through bodily antinomies.
