Human Things

Refusing emotion, unmoving,
some delusion of strength
I drank long ago. Until 
a goddess had her
handmaiden lay me hard, and
again and again and
still I couldn’t come
to terms, not with my
desire. It’s there,
I pointed out,
but it shouldn’t be!
Should it?
Feverishly,
I worship the old gods
of sex and war.
but I’m not very
good at either of 
those human things,
am I?
