Missiles and Land Mines

After the poetry reading
the lights go on and a lady
under a big hat rises  
behind dark sunglasses
and asks the poet why
he never writes about sex.

He says for the same reason
he never writes about war.
What more can be said
about missiles in flight
and land mines that need  
the right touch to go off.
