Are you a virgin? You ask.
What do you mean by this?
Do you mean, 
have you penetrated a vagina?
If that's what you mean, then yes,
I am.

Do you mean,
have you penetrated a man's anus, or
have you in turn been penetrated?
Neither. No.

And do you mean,
have you penetrated
the heart and mind,
and all that lies behind
the frosted glass of the flesh?

Then yes! yes! yes!
I have. But have you?
I doubt it, with a gaze so brittle
and a mind pierced with thistle,
like a dark tower 
stretching down
into the earth.
