Leaving sex out of this
There are few physical exertions more satisfying than
Taking an urgent piss
On virgin snow, or unwrapping a really good Havana,
Or lifting the first glass
Of nectar to quivering lips while leaning over the bar
To pat the barmaid's arse,
Or slotting an impossible shot--bam!--into that pocket
Your mates had bet you'd miss,
Or bolting two hot dogs with trimmings down your gob at the game.
Leaving sex out of this.
