Sex Without Love by Sharon Olds
Maybe I have been hobbled by growing up Catholic or putting women on pedestals because of all-boys school. But I have never swiped left or right on Tinder. I am no choir boy. I have had more than my fair share. But going through lovers has never been the way I have ever passed my time. It's neither sport nor a source of story or content. I feel like Sharon Olds gets my feelings perfectly right.

The Pope's Penis by Sharon Olds
Surely one of my favorite poems. Amazing. My four favorite poets are Sharon Olds, Galway Kinnell, Emily Dickinson, and Walt Whitman--there are more but these are the top-4.
