the male appendage came up in class
we were discussing dusty archives
what they hold
how they're used
why they're interesting
someone suggested future centuries might be confused if pornographic movies
prove to be all that remain of our sexual lives

we are an art college
not a nunnery

came the counter argument
the japanese would provide a sense of proportion
taking for example
in the realm of the senses
by nagisa oshima
wherein there's no such inflation of tumescence

i recall that in the galapagos
our guide explained some mollusk in her hand would mate
by flailing his penis
umpteen times his size
to reach neighboring females
further up the rock

a fine thing
