Semantics

I know why
there are
so many words
for the act
of intercourse:
sex
screwing
fucking
getting it on
bumping uglies
making whoopee—
all these words
and phrases
so that
the holy of holies—
Making Love
can never truly
be hijacked
for use
in any bed
or on any blanket
that doesn’t
contain
two people
who are naked
down to their
souls.
