BETWEEN POETRY AND PROSE
A letter from
"Lots of great reading:
I went back again to look at the site, to
see if I could pick out what had most connected for me, and found
I couldn't pick out any one idea/image over another - I think what
most draws me to a person's work is if they communicate ideas or perceptions
or constructions that I've been unable to express, or find expressed:
sometimes things so basic to me I can't even see them until pointed
out. It's partly "hey! someone else experienced that too!" - a suprise;
and partly it's revelatory, "aha! so that's what that is!"
"Men should be encouraged to look at
each others' bits.

"After spending an hour or more at
your site, I feel as though I know you. Few have put so much of themselves
in plain view. I enjoyed most your Uranian Poems, some of which awakened
in me the same urge and unspeakable desire which I think prompted
you to write them.
Perhaps the earliest known mention of mature bearded men who liked to have sex with other similar mature bearded men is in a book called Nuzhat al-Albab'da by Al-Tayfashi (or Al-Tifashi, 1184-1253), who was born in Tunisia and educated in Cairo & Damascus.
In it he observes that such men were dubbed the short-lived because of the risk they ran of being mugged and murdered by bigots.
Not much changes...
"A man can realise his sexuality only through
a sexual relationship
"Qu'a fait l'action génitale
aux hommes, si naturelle, si nécessaire et si juste, pour n'en
oser parler sans vergogne ?"
