Stultitia In Sexualitatis
Her mind only as deep as her pocket of flesh,
His heart only beats to his cock’s throb,
A woman, a man, a union tainted with schisms.
Her life only as whole as her breasts in her bra,
He’s only as secure as his tiny-cocked insecurities,
Two people, and there’s no individual between them.
Her mouth, her voice open merely as her legs are to whomever,
His thoughts, emotions hidden away in his pants,
Public miseducation, sexual oppression, violent obsessions.
Her place in the world limited to be the size of her ass,
His place condensed to be the size of his balls,
Social roles, miscommunication replicating genitalia.
Herself not seen through beauty’s blinding light of her face,
Himself not there, a cro-magnon autonomy.
Venus and Mars fall from the Heavens by earthly malice.
Ian Williams is a poet, musician, singer-songwriter, and sideshow performer from Denver, Colorado. Ian performs in local groups such as Caltrops, the sideshow-swing band Open Casket Revival and performs solo acts under the moniker Tantrik Nihilist. Primarily he is known as a multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and songwriter. Having had scarce appearances in smaller publications years ago he is less known for what he feels are his finest works. This writer is looking forward to establishing themselves not only as the poet they’ve been for the last fifteen years, but for the poet they’ll be in future years and the poet he’ll be until his death.
