a friend with benefits [poem]

I remember you without any resentment
our interlude
a reminder that this body is
and always was
my body
to do with as I wished
and so I did
with you
I learned that I liked this body
that it liked your body
that our bodies worked well
if not perfect
you gave me back the keys to my own car
and told me to drive
your guidance
imperfect and unromantic
better than the disregard of those who came before
so thank you
for being my beneficial friend
for enjoying this body
and showing me how to do the same
