War vs. Sex
no holds barred

[Author’s note: scotch involved. Discretion advised.]

sex, hands down
sure, war has the really loud noises
††shrapnel crushing toddler skulls
††bombs vaporizing families planningweddings

but sex has those subtle sounds
††soft, almost imperceptible
††or sudden, of strange frequency
and war has the media
††renaming, refocusing, adjusting, aligning
but the media can’t touch
††what sex does to perception
for taste, it’s pretty even.
††tears and sweat taste salty
††regardless of impetus
now the smells of war can impress
but the smells of sex…
††††I’m sorry, what was the question again?
