standing staked

when I began
was first out
the impossibly rich
opportunities for life
love lust
lavish languid
licked wicked
survival came bounding
out of nowhere

leaving me blind to anything
but her she
the weaker sex
that came in a variety of

and I sampled
sweetly swallowing
sultry sex
until I awakened
standing staked
on tracks
that led me to you
