Sex

i was late
to the game
of sex
so the first time
like a taste of cake
after years and years without
i supposed
it was going to be magical

and it was
magical
the first few times
but then
it became
sex
nothing
that made the rest
of the day
or night
that much different
with
or without it

so i thought
maybe it wasn't 
the right sex
that she
was maybe
the wrong partner
physically
spiritually
intellectually
so i found
a few more
and the results
were always the same

sex
disappointingly
turned out to be
little more
than a simple pleasure
like an ice cream cone
and a simple achievement
like a good
grade

i suppose
like a lot of 
other
supposedly important 
things
i could pretend
sex
is something
more
than what it is
but why waste 
any more time
dreaming
or
pretending?
