Unlaid for forty days

I'm beset by a line from a Richard Brautigan poem. I'll quote from memory, so forgive me if I don't get it quite right.

"Unlaid for forty days.
If I were dead
I couldn't attract a female fly."

I know the feeling--multiplied by about a factor of ten.

Yesterday I was so randy I was ravenous. I ended up doing myself five times. Yeah, I know: that's a lot. But I just couldn't stop thinking about sex. Apparently thinking about sex and doing yourself doesn't reduce the urge to do either.

Still, I suspect this site is partially responsible. When I signed on I had high hopes (okay, a childish fantasy) that within just a few weeks I would meet this smart, smart-ass woman with a four-mile-wide streak of wild and wanton, love and lust of epic proportions to ensue shortly thereafter.

I guess you can imagine how that turned out, but then I discovered the blogs, which exposed me to people farther away than fifty miles, many of whom blew me away by being both astringently cool and altogether delectable. I was buzzed at being able to read their posts and converse with them, and yes, I was further buzzed by feeling less isolated and, well, freaky.

But after a while I started to get into the whole myth of Tantalus thing; he sees the fruit he desires, but it's always just beyond reach. Okay, that's a bit histrionic, but you get the drift. Anyway, this stage has returned me to a goal-directed outlook. "Goal-directed," hell; I feel like a freakin salmon trying to get upstream!

Hmm, I wonder what the next stage will be. Are there five, like the infamous five stages of coping with death? That's okay, but I hope at least one of them involves some serious cuddling. I mean, it's a cool evening, the crickets are singing, and all these candles are just sitting here, doing nothing.

oh Connor, anyone that can get it up and off five times in a day is damn fine in my book. Five times, five fingers, five stages, maybe next will be five women, who knows?

Milk for the Duck

Unlaid / 20 days

my sexual image
isn't worth a shit.

If I were dead
I couldn't attract
a female fly.

20 days..but you still have him beat...and seeing as he's dead its unlikely he will catch up

I'm with saintli on this one..well done man! well done...and anyone who knows brautigan is ok in my book too. He's the reason I write.

Hang in there, get a grip (again) it will happen
