Fantasy, Man

Dec 03, 2019 - Matthew Papa


Finally a room of my own,

To play in darkness,

With color, with light


(with me)


The magic of this had not escaped me.




I dig,

Dig in the muck of my erotic spectacle.

Am I here?

My drool betrays me

But does it really?

Do I own it, or does it own me?




My body,

My physicality,

Has become an affront.



The irony of this had not escaped me.




What a funny little trick you played upon me.

Like a dog I chase my tail.

But I’m more clever than you think.

This is a dizziness I can get used to, 





“Protect me from what I want.” 

Easier said than done, Jenny!
