Sex
is a conversation
in erotic silence,
using something
better than words.

Converse with your body.
Feel each other’s heat.
Temperature
cannot lie.
It is truer than words.

Converse with your soul,
couched in inner wilderness.
The soul has its own rhyme and reason.
It has a subtle way to triumph
over the ego’s objection.

Sex
is a communion,
not a solo act.
First be quiet and listen.
Just like any sacred art,
it requires your full presence.
