Bright Sad

bright boys eat
whatever may come
because they can't see
what they've done

sad girls lay
with limbs open wide
because they think life
isn't a word to be tried

don't go there
said the men to the boys
what those girls offer
isn't all fun and joy

dust yourself off
say's the ladies to the girls
keep those secrets sacred
and boys'll give you the world

here I stand alone
not sure what to say
struck by the awareness
that sex isn't a game you play.
