To Choose A Muse

he was an impotent sex expert
a kind of modern-day Havelock Ellis
and she was his rock even though they never bed
like the aforementioned and his wife Edith

and over him – great influence she’d come to exert
like Aspasia upon Pericles
the one he defended with tears he’d never before shed
the same adored by many of his contemporaries for her wit

so the point to be exact
is that of all the things for which you can wish
more than your heart, think with your head
what kind of woman you want to end up with
