In The Desert Of The Heart

In the desert of the heart
Any touch may start
A flame

Any hand
May command
A hot
Flush
(Wanted or not),
But who are we to rush
To blame?

Is this thing called shame
A social construct that keeps us low?
Many prefer not to go
Down that path
Of enquiry. They laugh,
Make a smutty joke
And on their own hypocrisy choke.
