Since circumcision for cystitis
Pissing myself at primary school

The member's elastic and imagined Cock-Ups
On to the phallocentric career of Cocked-up Up-Cocking
Cadencing in a crescendo of cock-clap
Herpes recurrent from the One-Night-Hump
Faltering feather touch fannying about
Fuck-failing father
Losing my willy to live
In cancer's cure of chemical castration
Life shows itself a test

No more testosterone's testicular torment
But of non-copular courage

Winning the will to live
With intimacy of self disabused

Romance reordered
Friendship found

In truth
The now
