Same Difference

men will not

pen bodice rippers,

ripped to nip

it’s more the zipper

— –fly– —

 your guy

is still romantic,

just not aboard

a mock Titanic.

His light fantastic

might involve,

the horizontal

–after all

the same intent

as steamy novel,

but not dressed up

in tawdry twaddle.

The bloom he offers

just might be,

a rushing flush

to both your cheeks

as such negating

need for vase

you can’t stuff stems

of bloom on face

so rest assured

though he may not–

write you sonnets

on the spot,

he thinks & feels

the same as you,

all mushy, gushy

—slightly blue.
