Men Are Marvelous


Imagine the male form for a moment

if you will, in profile, back dropped

by bright blue light, below the hip

above the thigh, I make no

apology for the favored view.


A male brain is no more a question

mark than a female's. Mars is

a metaphor for earth, so is Venus.

Males have the same wonder

at their bodies as females. The parts

are different which make for great

contemplation of the opposite.

Males are marvels.


Male and man are as different

as sire and father, the way female

and woman differ from siresse

and mother. But pardon my

preferences of view. Women

in the showers are just plain

embarrassing, I would love

to visit a men’s shower for the

special (e)affects.


Men have a different perspective

and nurtured or natured, they

see the world from eyes of steel.

Most of them. However males

who see the world through softer

eyes have born well condemnation

from cross eyed cultures. I think

males who are men, state clearly

how they walk, but nod respect

to their counterparts who prefer

males as mates.


I don’t get women looking at profiles

of women when men are statuesque

marvelous. It is so egalitarian that now

in movies we get to see better profiles

of male anatomy and not just the female

parts I see all the time in a mirror

after a shower.

Love this, A!

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Thought Provoking

Disliking most men that I have come to know, I find this poem very thought provoking and a casue of further reconsideration of the subkect.  Like certain Russian theologians of the last century, I believe that women are the pinnacle of Creation (the account in Genesis also suggests this), but perhaps one should give Father Adam his due as well.

Balance of Judgment

Sometimes, I find myself challenging males to be men - that is wrong. Males and females have the choice to become whatever they wish. Like adults who refuse to be adults preferring childhood or ignorance as bliss. Balance is important to a writer - to see the whole, not just the mirror view, Thank you for the read and thought provoking comment ~~A~~
