In the beginning there was semen
In a deep mouth of flesh.
At the crest I travelled
On a wave of virile mass.

Through a tunnel of mucus
And on toward a vault
With tourists and traffic
I just paced myself.

Not "I" as my whole self,
Just the half that I had
Before greeting the rest
Of my better half.

A connection was made
Through the shared love of science
And vows were taken;
A seed was hired.

A cavern of fluid
Brought shape to my hide
In the months that remained
'Til the time of my life.

I thrashed for the reason
Of spilling from the crack
To the palms of the doctor;
To a towel full of scraps.

My brains wouldn't fit
Through her organ of sex.
An incision was made
With a scalpel and masks.

I should have noticed the beauty
And not how it hurt,
Wet like a cherry
In the bloodbath of birth.
