…..me? stupid??


When I first slept with you
I mistook you for god.
But then I thought “wait a minute –
you can’t be god. You exist.”

That made me feel monumentally stupid
but I consoled myself by thinking
plenty of folks have mistaken
far worse things for god.

In fact, it occurred to me that not only
was I not that stupid, but in fact
I probably wasn’t even the stupidest
guy you’d ever slept with

because, face it
if that last guy was so goldarned clever
how come I’m the one here tonight
mistaking you for god?

    I love your fresh sexual frankness and confidence. It is confronting, refreshing, and yes, intriguing and tempting. This is what I call a “real man” writing.

    What you are telling us here is you haven’t learned from the mistakes that led to your last poem.

  12. Very witty.

  13. That’s clever! 😀

    You’re stupid like a fox 🙂

  17. It’s really beautiful, is this poem autobiographic ?

  18. Yeah, I like it. Not sure I exactly follow the argument, but it must be interesting to sleep with god.

    • The argument is something along the lines that I slept with something that exists, so if you drew a Euler diagram of the sets of “things that exist” and “things that don’t exist” then that with which I slept would be represented in the former and god in the latter.

    Generally, I’m not much for poetry (My son is the one who is the poet). However, when I read this poem I have to say that I’ve been there, felt that. 🙂

  25. Gosh, what a satisfying revelation that must have been! Ha!

  26. Now this i like! My cup of tea indeed.
