    Selected Poem
Gandhi
Gandhi tested himself
by sleeping with 20 naked virgins every night
to prove he was above temptation.

But here, alone, now
You are unready for the test.
You know you'd fail,
and I want you to.

When the soul is strong and self-aware,
it is a beautiful spirit,
and all the more free.

We won't lie down.
We won't kiss or caress or touch or smile too long.
You won't straddle me as you had wanted to in the brewpub,
and I won't let you not question the soul.

And this is where I am wrong.
We are not wrong in desire,
I am not wrong to challenge.
I am wrong to prick with tiny pins
to deflate, abate, and infiltrate
the places you know
are safe and just.

20 naked virgins every night.
But not one
for you
with me
for us.

I bow to the soul.
