Phone Sex

Phone Sex

the writer 
used to say
you gotta
fake it
sometimes
in the details
to provide
context
to what's
real

but if
you try faking
the other part
the part that's real
the act of writing
will feel more like
phone sex
compared
to real
ripe
perfectly passionate
copulation
with a true
lover
and that's how you'll know
if you're
faking
what's real

i wondered
how this writer
knew so much
about phone sex
which always seemed
kinda creepy
but he seemed
like a good writer
seeming to know
what he was talking about
when it came
to art
so i didn't bother
asking him anything
about
the phone sex

but later
i got to thinking
maybe that's his genius
maybe
he never had phone sex
but the analogy
was just
right

maybe
he was faking it
faking the idea
that he'd
had phone sex
to make a point
about
something else
far
more 
real
