A POEM ON POLLINATION

Semen is latin

for a dormant, fertilised,

plant ovum-

a seed.

Men’s ejaculate

is chemically more akin

to plant pollen.

See,

It is really

more accurate

to call it

mammal pollen.

To call it

semen

is to thrust

an insanity

deep inside our culture:

that men plow women

and plant their seed

when, in fact,

what they are doing

is pollinating

flowers.
