Penis Prayer Sestina

The woman’s hands caress and creates the erect penis.
The union of female and male touch the religious prayer.
Take a ball of clay and erect a phallus with thyne hands.
The head emerges at the apex of the triangle.
Cross your love and bear the cross.
The dimpled wrinkles in the skin are captured by the light.

The penis beams for the maiden but the crone has no light.
Testicles removed, becomes the ethereal penis.
Slack breasts needs support by bra à la crisscross.
The light isolates the dark of the brooding phallic prayer.
Negative space frames the triangle
and silhouettes the hands.

Making life work its energy like busy hands.
Youths perfection poised and frozen by the light.
Oh, Renaissance of mankind, be the triangle.
You hidden member in our censored world, Oh Penis.
The innocent maid holds vigil with silent prayer.
Increase pleasure and take guilt off the cross.

Is the sanctity of marriage better than the prostitute’s cross?
Marry a partner to tie and capture the hands.
The praying mantis clings to the twig and offers prayer.
The oil sparkles on appendage reflecting light.
Silence the anger, the rage of the wife’s trapped penis
Under the new religion may sexuality be the triangle.

Art be it in heaven, the image is strong befits a triangle.
Find someone you click with, pleasure the cross.
Allow the sperm to strengthen the penis.
Rodin, the master sculptor of light and hands.
The penis separates from the body, oh so light.
The mistress touches the textural prayer.

Touch the virgin, just like a prayer.
Finger tips form the inverted triangle.
Spread the light,
Destroy the cross.
Corrupt marriage, the laying on of hands.
She owns the commodity of the penis.

Walk toward the light and discard the cross.
Take up the triangle with your hands
and make a prayer so the Goddess is amused with the penis.
