fixation #30days #30days2018 by Cherie Ann Turpin


missing evidence

of cock

of dick

of penis

of phallus

our culture rarely actually shows us cock outside pornographic film

or accidental tweets or instagrams

cocks in red fur and gold chains

(Safari really did that, didn’t he)

or else we don’t hear of it beyond bars

tacit reminders of men who may or may not realize

how much they need us to notice they have cock to show us

when they speak bars about other men’s cocks

so much anxiety in the containment of the phallus behind slacks and boxers

so upsetting to heterosexual men to discover

women have their own gaze

or the male gaze is not limited to women’s bodies

so much emotion erupting from a small hidden place

caged in cotton and wool
