I overheard some anthropologists say

(they said they didn’t mind)

that female chimpanzees could not

achieve orgasm

even if they did it

missionary position – belly up.


That said, I thought

I’d go to Africa

and find a beauty myself,

swinging from tree to tree;

free of life’s rhetoric,

never having heard of Germaine Greer,

unknowledgeable about the finer details

of her anatomy.


I’d bring her – back to them

and make a monkey of them all.
