Naked Hairy Wary Thing

Naked hairy wary thing
can’t alter your behavior:
fated to be sensuously vexed –
perplexed at how to be your savior –

it knows to nose around
and test for warm dark interest –
to find and trace the scent
of any rumbling ardor in the flesh –

but cannot tell you
what to do about it.
It knows no metaphor, analogy:
what runs like blood throughout it

is its simple understanding
that you physically exist –
and that whatever this might offer
you’re determined to resist.
