The calorie count of sperm is minimal
To be sure, if not nonexistent.
And I can't understand when you take
it to the hilt -- that which has been
in a sling of cotton, sweated upon,
spicy like vinegar -- you cannot also
accept the gift of come, like oysters
kept fresh in their shells, only to
slide down a little salty from the sea.
