Rumple Oxbridge: “On Pornography”

By Rumple Oxbridge, The Pacific’s radical rhymer, sometimes referred to as “rhymer-in-residence.”


I was going to say
a little goes
a long way

but if I may be so bold
why should any
sex be sold?

Watching nakedness cavort
suggests it’s just
a spectator sport;

love is touching
when eyes are closed–
open, it’s just rubbing.
